WWI British Ointment Anti Gas Jar by Doulton – Item 96317

Large stoneware jar marked ‘OINTMENT ANT-GAS’. Complete with its metal top and carrying handle. Good condition for age. Jar measures 25cm in height. Made by Doulton, Lambeth. Similar example shown in the Passchendaele Museum.

Note: One of the problems faced in the First World War had been with gasses in their liquid state, especially mustard gas, which clung to skin and clothes and inflicted terrible chemical burns. To counter the effects of this, special ointments were created that could be applied to affected skin to neutralise the gas or dilute and wash it away.
