Title

Set of Glass Bubbles

Description

Pictured here is a set of glass bubbles held within a wooden case with an interior green velvet lining. Made by the instrument makers Gardner & Son, these bubbles were used to brew spirits. As seen on the label of the box, the bubbles would have been used to hold spirits of different strengths, from very weak to very strong.
