Pair Vintage Italian Apothecary Jars

A pair of vintage glazed terracotta apothecary jars handpainted in blue and white with ornate calligraphy writing in black. One appears to read “V. rasino” while the other “L. d. orlo.” There is extensive crazing on these jars but they are otherwise in very good condition. The “rasino” jar has some glaze pops in the blue above the writing.
