French pharmacy jars date back to the early part of the 20th century and are quite expensive when you do come across them, the average price point being about $100.00. I suspect that way back in those days of yore, people probably legitimately kept cocaine, arsenic and opium in these gorgeous apothecary vessels.
Jonathan Adler created a similar line of “vice” jars and while I love how whimsical they are, they too come with an equally unreasonable (for my wallet) price point of around $140.00 EACH.
Taking a page from both of these proverbial playbooks, I created my own fantabulous vice jars with a more palatable price point of about $40 for all 3 (and I didn’t even pay for them out of my wallet – they were on my Xmas wish list – knowing in the back of my head the entire time what I was going to do with them). While they don’t house any of the items they suggest, you will find them in my bathroom housing q-tips, cotton balls and makeup sponges.
