Teacher's Guide - Italian Renaissance - Albarello/Apothecary Jar Details

This resuable giude covers 1300-1600 and such key people as Medici family, Michelangelo, da Vinci, and Machiavelli. It is to be used in conjunction with the Italian Renaissance Apothecary Jar (EDU 006). During this time, people were making new discoveries in art, science, and medicine. Special ceramic jars were needed to hold the medicines and spices. Islamic potters created non-porous earthenware with tin glaze that was suitable for storing medicines. This earthenware had many uses and was traded throughout Spain and Italy. It became known as maiolica. A maiolica jar used for storing medicine is called an albarello. The first apothecary jars were made in the Middle East. During the Renaissance, Islamic art styles and new commerce in medicine began to influence Italy. New centers for glazed earthenware were established, and Italy became very well-known for its manufacturing of maiolica. The earliest apothecary jars had no labels, so they could be used and reused for a variety of medicines.
