The bottle sports a ground glass stopper and 2 labels. The front label is mildly stained and is complete. The small back label is perfect. Considering that stock bottles such as this example were designed for reuse and refilling, the condition remains very good
This is a fabulous white ceramic 1950s pharmacy drug store display with decorative gold gilt embellishments. The mortar measures 7 inches tall and the solid pestle is 8.5 inches long.
The condition is near excellent with no damage, cracks or dings.
An outstanding display that will compliment any pharmacy collection.
From the GLASCO Glass Company, this pill tile is in nice condition, with 2 edge dings and various faint glass scratches acquired as a result of use, resulting in a fine, vintage patina.
First, is the very visually-appealing, Dr. Daniels "COLIC DROPS" medicine that contains 2 corked bottles housed in an interesting, graphically-detailed box. The box measures 4.5" x 3" x 1" and is in fair condition dating to 1906. The corked bottles are in fine condition and are embossed drops #1 and #2.
The second bottle is aqua colored and embossed H.H.H HORSE MEDICINE D.D.T. 1868 and measures 8.25" tall. There various small closed air bubbles, two tiny lip imperfections and a surface scratch on the back.
The third bottle is embossed "PRATTS VETERINARY LINIMENT PRATT FOOD CO PHILA USA" and measures 5.5" h x 2"W. This aqua colored bottle is embossed 485 on the bottom, has numerous tiny, enclosed, air bubbles, mild faint interior staining and six exterior circular stains on the neck. There is no damage to the bottle, and it displays well.
Each individual globe sports ground glass construction and each fits into position with perfection. The interior of all sections is sparkling clear with almost no trace of staining, a problem which is often seen in such pieces, but not here.
The only flaw is a very small surface crack in the large globe as seen in the photos. This does not effect structural integrity as the globe holds water with no leakage whatsoever. This imperfection, in fact, is not visible when the globe is filled with water. It can also be easily hidden by positioning this side of the globe facing towards the back of one's display. Simply a faulous piece!
These glass SPINAL CORRECTION signs once hung near the entryway of the physical therapy department and are ready for display in your collection!
The first sign measures 13 inches long x 3 inches high and is of thick, heavy plate glass construction. The second sign has the same description but has about and inch missing in length. The signs sport gold-toned, applied lettering and are finished off in black paint, such as in the style seen in reverse-painted glass objects. There is some paint loss and lifting which is commensurate with older painted glass.
This handsome sextet is highlighted by a circa 1900 Fraser Tablet Company STRYCHNINE poison bottle in very nice condition complete with its worn, though functional, box.

The 3.25" tall Mallinckrodt Phenolphthalein stock box (a laxative) contains four 1 ounce bottles, all in unused condition.

This choice group awaits your collection!

Some History: Henry Clay Glover started practicing veterinary medicine sometime prior to 1877. In 1888, his medicines were awarded the medal of superiority by the American Institute of New York. He identified himself as a “Specialist in Canine Diseases". As a personal testimonial, he stated that as of 1897, he had been the Veterinarian to the Westminster Kennel Club for 20 years.
The first known address for Dr. Glover is 1293 Broadway, New York City. Tins with this address state “H. Clay Glover,V.S. Prop", and appear to be the earliest-known. Some time prior to 1914, the company moved to 118 West 31st Street. Glover was still sole proprietor, but by 1917 the company was incorporated, and the tins stated “H. Clay Glover Co” while retaining the West 31st Street address. The company moved to 127-129 West 24th Street in 1923.
All printed information is in English and French. The 4.5 inch tin cylindrical container is full with what appears to be the original pink powder contents and is in very good condition with the exception of some rust on the bottom of the tin. The paper label is complete and shows minor wear spots from storage.
A great disease specific medication!
The CACTINA PILLETS bottle retains a 1925 date on its package insert. The bottle, embossed "SULTAN DRUG CO, SAINT LOUIS, measures 2 inches tall, and sports both a labeled cork as well as a front prescription label with detailed directions for use. The box and insert are in good condition with some age wear including a crimp at the top of the label. One interior box flap has separated.
Dr. Ballentine's Homeopathic Specific medicine is quite scarce! The bottle label notes this medicine as a CURE, indicating that the age is minimally early 1900s. The bottle measures just over 3.5 inches tall and sports perfect, detailed, cork and bottle labels. The large package insert features a list of Ballentine's homeopathic medicine cures. The box notes Dr. Ballentine's association with the renowned, homeopathic, HAHNEMANN MEDICAL COLLEGE, Philadelphia, PA. The box is complete and in good condition with some scuffs and minor loss.
There are 3 examples from the most notable company, BECTON, DICKINSON & Co. The 1939 B-D YALE LOC box contains 8 needles. The B-D ERUSTO sample from the early 1940s has 8 needles that are secured in a metal tray. Each needle includes their cleaning wire. The third B-D box has a patent date of 1941 and sports 8 tiny needles secured in a metal tray. Condition is very good.

A single box of LILLY HYPODERMIC NEEDLES contains 9 needles that nestle into their fitted box. Condition of the contents is fine, and the box is in fairly good condition showing old tape on front. Dates to the 1940s.
A single box of ECO STAINLESS HYPODERMIC NEEDLES sports 6 needles in a fitted metal base. The contents are fine and the box is modestly worn. This example also dates to the 1940s.
Finally, a partial box of 9 needles clipped into a metal tray round out this very nice grouping of vintage stock. Labeled LUER SLIP and sporting their cleaning wires, this group dates to the 1940s. Box is fair.
Hard to find in this quantity and quality!
Recently acquired during an antiques hunt in the Savanna, Georgia, area, this beauty measures just over 12 inches high and just under 5 inches in diameter at the base.
Condition of the glass label: The tapered glass label is complete, with very minor paint lifting and discoloration most evident along the bottom of the label. The glass portion of label is undamaged.
Condition of the bottle: There are no chips to the bottle. The interior of the bottle is clear except for some faint deposit on the top water edge. The base of bottle is embossed "Pat'd Dec. 10 95" (1895).
Condition of the stopper: The decorative stopper has a tiny edge fleck on the edge of one lower facet. The lower inside of stopper has 3 unobtrusive fractures on the rear portion not visible from the front. There are 2 fractures on the upper portion of the bottle where the stopper fits. One of them is on the left and is barely visible. The stopper is fixed in placed and has not been tampered with.
The photos adequately present the condition of bottle. A stunning centerpiece for your collection.
This handsome cabinet is constructed of a hardwood (perhaps walnut) and sports an eye-appealing, front-facing, bakelite, control panel. The cabinet is rather heavy and measures 15"W x 14" H x 12.5" with a canted front panel and two wooden handles for transport.
The bottom drawer stores all of the wires and connections noted in the photo. The condition of the cabinet is very good with wear commensurate with age. The wiring is brittle and non functional.
An awesome piece of medical instrumentation - fusing both form and function not often found in today's market!
The large brass sign measures 5" x 14", exhibits some tarnishing, and was most likely placed on the doctor's office building exterior.
The diminutive brass sign, measures 6.5" x 3.5" and was most likely attached to an interior door.
Both signs are in very nice condition and are easily displayed either on a shelf or on the wall!
The pair is offered at $100.00 or either one of the signs may be purchased individually at $60.00 each.
This exquisite sewing basket was made by Native Americans residing in Canada near the Maine border for the purpose of selling to the tourist trade--- the wealthy New Englanders who frequented the Maine Coastline towns during the summers!
The basket is truly in near perfect condition with two tiny breaks to the delicate splint --- hardly noticeable to the eye and certainly not affecting the structural integrity of the piece in any way. Lovely construction!
When the lid is removed and the interior of the basket and underside of the lid is visible, one sees that some of the splint was at one time dyed blue with vegetable dye. The exterior side of this once dyed splint, has long since returned to its natural color due to years of exposure to the light of day.
Vintage Native American baskets are becoming exceedingly scarce! An especially desirable example due to its fine construction and condition!
The bowl sits on a 1/8" high footed base and has a lovely turned edge rim. It has glaze crazing typical of an 85+ year old piece of pottery as well as two, very tight hairlines approximately 1.50 inches in length. One is placed at the pouring spout and the other near the back fingerhold. There are also two, tiny, 1/8" long superficial flakes--one on the outside edge to the rim and one on the body of the batter bowl. The batter bowl is also missing its wire handle.
An outstanding piece of American Spongeware which is seldom found due to the heavy every-day use that a batter bowl would encounter. Becoming much more difficult to find!
