The Condé hospice moved to Chantilly at the beginning of the 18th century by the will of the princes. Responsible for welcoming the poor, the sick, the elderly, the destitute and abandoned children, the Condé hospice is run by the Sisters of Saint Vincent de Paul. In the 1780s, the hospice acquired a collection of polychrome earthenware medicine jars to store powders, ointments, pills and other substances used as medicines. Miraculously preserved in its entirety, this magnificent collection of 120 pots is installed in the chapel of the hospice: pots in the shape of urns or soup tureen, with floral decoration, marked with the arms of the princes of Bourbon-Condé and with astonishing indications ( hemlock, whalebone, Mithridates…) or sometimes repulsive (woodlice eyes, dog tongue or even viper powder)! The Condé Pharmacy is open occasionally according to the calendar of guided tours of the city of Chantilly and during Heritage Days.
