Eight antique, or very early vintage clear glass lidded apothecary jars made by Wheaton Glass Company, in Millville, New Jersey.
The aforementioned company used the marks found on jar bases between 1901 and 1920, so these are earlier 20 century examples, however they appear to have never been used; all still with clear, bright, clean glass, that looks as new.
The glass does show the typical waves, bubbles and dimples expected and appropriate for the period.
These jars all feature ground glass necks and stoppers, with nice unused etched label areas, (see near lower edge/base) which is somewhat more uncommon to find on this size bottle, by this manufacturer.
The jars appear to be unused, clear class, free of breaks, cracks, significant scratches, etc.   All are in very nice antique estate condition, with the exception that two of the stoppers have small, minor, edge/rim flecks/chips and a third stopper has a similar edge/rim fleck, along with a minor chip that affects the side of the neck that inserts into the bottle.  This is not extremely significant, as the chip did little more than remove a small portion of the ground glass area, leaving a small smooth area that is not ground on the side of the stopper neck.  I have carted these bottles around with me through numerous moves over the years and I believe that these stopper chips are from me not having packing between bottle and stopper, rather than the bottles having been used.   I did not notice the flecks when taking photographs, so I will try to remember to add a close up image as soon as possible.  If you require an image before I have one posted, please send a message through our Contact page.
Overall very nice antique apothecary jars, with the wider mouths and harder to find etched labels.
NOTE:  The five perfect bottles will be sold first, and the three with the referenced minor issues will be sold last.
During the era, apothecary jars were utilized by various professions and trades, including pharmaceutical, medical, dental, laboratories and more.  Today they can be still be used for similar purposes, as well as for oils, perfume, spices, or storage for virtually whatever your needs may be.  They are also very collectible as display and decorator items.
