8-Drawer Apothecary Chest, English, circa 1900



Good looking apothecary chest with eight drawers, each with its original label. Other labels are found along the sides of the dovetailed drawers. Each knob is turned with a center bone detail, arched legs elevate the drawers; this could sit on the floor or a tabletop. Some of the labeled drawers contained Cort:Casslae (Compound Infusion of Senna), Cort:Cuspar (Bark of Galipea Cusparia), Gum:Oliban (Frankincense), Sod:Sub-Bor (Sub-borate Soda) and Aloes of Barbados (Aloe Vera).

Excellent condition with a great patina. One drawer knob is missing the bone.
