Cobalt blue albarello from the pharmacy.

One of the interesting aspects of the Esteva Pharmacy is its collection of albarellos, or blue pots. These monochrome pots, glazed in cobalt blue on the outside and white on the inside, probably came from Talavera in the 16th century. The collection is remarkable for its size. They were labelled and the apothecary then drew Louis XVI-style medallions on them.
