A FAKE APOTHECARY JAR:
Let's take a look at that Fake Apothecary Jar. Note how clean and new looking the glass looks. To me it looks like it could have been made just yesterday, and in all likely hood it was.
The same statements could also be said of the label, (paper looks too new, ink still wet etc.) and numerous other factors. But again, WARNING, it is very possible and in fact very easy to artificially create the appearance of age.
