Good morning, Goodnight- mug is our fun play on the vintage French apothecary medicine jars. One of which is in our personal collection! 
In 1803 morphine changed the medical world. The principle ingredient was derived from the opium resins. Making it highly potent. This was widely prescribed in the mid to late 1800s. 

And the other… well I think most of us know what that is. But if you don’t, Cocaine was used as a local anesthetic, and all around miracle drug. It is a stimulant, and before the Victorians knew it was highly addictive, and dangerous (much like opium) it was used often. 

We are quite big fans of the Victorian medical world and the use of medications (like opiums, and leeches!) is very fascinating and was the beginning of the evolution of medicine.
