The article presents the unpublished collection of ceramic pharmacy jars made between the 17th and 19th century in Caltagirone and now preserved in the Museum of the Order of St. John in London. The author introduces a study of vases - seven albarellos, two jugs, two amphoras and a spherical jar - through the morphological and stylistic analysis and proposes a dating for each object. This research is supported by comparisons with published artefacts, preserved in museums and private collections.
