Steampunk Apothecary Bottles

If you’ve ever seen a movie based in the wild west (or a television show) that features a travelling medicine show you’ll remember the clink sound in the wagon – that’s caused by the collection of glass bottles.

No matter what miracle cure you’re spruiking you want to make sure that the bottles are glass or you can’t call them Steampunk (or Victorian or antique for that matter!)

Of course most of the vintage glass apothecary bottles weren’t clear, they were mostly brown or green so these antique glass bottles are a much more perfect fit –

Just add the perfect label and fill with whatever you want. If you’re using them as a ‘prop’ for Halloween party you could add bliss balls or skittles (or other confectionery) with a name like Lung Elixir or Steampunk Apothecary Labels on Glass Apothecary BottlesGood Health Tonic. Alternatively decant liquors like Blue Curacao into them and label them with Dr Smythe’s Amazing Medicine and add shots to glasses to make cocktails.

As home decor you can also have a lot of fun with them, the labels and contents can depend on what part of your home you display these apothecary jars in.

Steampunk Apothecary Labels

There are a variety of steampunk apothecary labels that you can buy in packs and just stick on to bottles or jars to create your very own ‘medicine kit’ for our own travelling medicine show.   One good thing about these labels is that you can get them with names already on them (very handy if you’re not good at thinking up names).

The image of the two bottles (above) show a couple of different types of steampunk labels that you can buy which I think are pretty cool.  Here’s a few available to purchase –

  1. These bottles and labels are truly fabulous! I love the neat shapes of the bottles, and I especially love the apothecary jars. I have several in my craft room that I use to store odds and ins. I really like the idea of adding labels to steampunk the up just for fun too.

  2. What a clever idea. My son-in-law is an artist and currently putting together a comic strip website that is steampunk based. He’s the reason I now know what steampunk is! 🙂 My daughter-in-law is in to ‘everything Halloween’ and they are famous (in their neighborhood — LOL) for their Halloween decorations inside and out and their Halloween parties. I’ll have to tell her about these apothecary bottles and labels for this coming Halloween. She’s always looking for more ideas in addition to the 27 boxes of decorations she already has. LOL.

    1. Elf please let me know when your son-in-law publishes his website as I’d love to check it out – I may even review it on here.
