Spanish "Jabon Medicina" translates to "medical or medicated soap." Pretty pure white porcelain, heavy but translucent. The label is applied gold leaf on Japan black done by a professional, who was known in those days as, a labeler. The lettering, in this case, looks to have been cut with the aid of a stencil plate. The red color is hand painted, as I can see the brush strokes. A beautiful and rare example of antique druggist shop furniture, as it was called.
The gold bands on the jar bottom are gold leaf also. The gold on the lid appears to have been painted and has not held up as well as the gold leaf.
It is not marked. Maybe from Mexico or Spain. We purchased it from an estate sale in Atlanta.
Stands about 10 inches high with the lid. Weighs 3 pounds 4 ounces.
Condition: Excellent. No chips, cracks, or crazing. Very clean and pretty inside.
Only 6/8 inch. Weighs 5.7 grams. Marked with the S in a shielf for Simon Brothers, 9 for the size, and marked sterling. Nicely engraved with a Spanish or Southwestern shape.

This is for the set of six trays.
I see a seven year old boy in his night shirt not happy about getting his picture taken. From his long Buster Brown hair cut I'm guessing it is anywhere from 1880 to 1910, (just guessing!).

Condesa de Leganza wines are from Spain. The lady cameo is on the lid and two sides, not on the ends or bottom.
I don't know how old these are, but the company is now using a full lady silhouette logo instead of the head cameo. These nice wine boxes came from a liquor store that was closing.
