Mandrake Apothecary Jar (Mandragora)

Hello all,  today I’m listing a rather unique item in my shop – a Mandrake Apothecary Jar aka Mandragora.

These lovely apothecary jars were made by Eli Lilly (pharmaceuticals) in the 1970’s and were given as promotional gifts and were a Limited Edition.  It’s hard to believe, but this jar is over 50 years old!

This would look great on a mantel or added to your collection in your cabinet of curiosities.

Mandragora (Mandrake) was actually used by the anceint Egyptians as a pain killer or sleeping aid, but these days – well, every self-respecting witch or wizard needs a place to keep their Mandrake stash.
