Object Domicile31 Herschel Court, Claremont
Object Origin31 Herschel Court, Claremont Circa 1965
The object was made by M&C LTC drugstore manufacturers, when the company expanded its products from the coal trade, automotive industry, and cigarette manufacturing, into medicine distribution. It was most likely made through a “blown in mould” method, as there is a lack of uniform thickness, as well as bubbles in the glass. It was produced with a glass stopper to hold the medicine securely within it.
The antique glass medicine bottle was used in a curatorial art project, to form part of a functional lamp with other bottles from the collection. The lamp had an old clock inside, a glass ball and some other objects belonging to my past.
