Pair of French Directoire Late 18th Century Lidded Apothecary Jars with Labels

A pair of French Directoire period ceramic lidded apothecary jars from the late 18th century, with hand-painted foliage motifs, labeled Tamarind and Ext. Cicutæ A:F, from the Deroche factory. Born in France during the Directoire, each of this pair of apothecary jars features a conic lid accented with a finial and a central shield, surrounded by hand-painted foliage motifs and highlighting the labels, Tamarind for one and Ext. Cicutæ for the other. Nicely decorative with their delicately gilded accents and hand painted décor, these French Directoire apothecary jars, circa 1795 signed Deroche on the underside, will be a lovely addition to any shelf, table or buffet top.
