Pharmacy jars used for spices and drugs were a specialty of Valencian potters during the 1400s. Their shape—tall and slender without handles or spouts—made them easy to store, while the wide mouth provided ready access to their contents. A parchment label (attached with a string) would have indicated their contents.
