Abstract

The Town Museum of Llivia, Spanish enclave in Eastern Pyrenees, displays a XVIIIth century dispensary transmitted by a lineage of pharmacists. Decorated plant boxes, Catalonian albarellos (jars) and original items: a reredos shaped toxic cabinet and typical blue albarellos can be seen there. The shape, type and inscriptions of these blue jars are considered through hypothesis about their origin, aesthetic justifications, and the historical and geographic conditions which may infer these specificities.
