Research Facts
Show globes were a recognizable symbol for pharmacists; they were often filled with colourful liquid and displayed in the window; show globes were also used to show a pharmacist's skill in extracting and mixing chemicals which produced the different colours; there were generally two types of show globes, freestanding and wall mounted.
This show globe is without glass mould lines or pontil marks and the glass does not look or feel like a lead based glass so the inference could be that this show globe is made from hand blown glass. Research shows that the simple design of the body and the decorative large lid with fancy finial rather than as a decorative stopper dates this piece as 1880-1920.
