Offered is a patented, Civil War era, clear glass, hand-blown apothecary bottle sporting an appealing label under glass label that is marked 'ACID SULPH. DIL.'.

The base, ground glass stopper, and stunning gold gilt label make this bottle very desirable!

The condition of this 8 inch tall bottle is excellent. The glass label is undamaged with mild unobtrusive paint flecking around the edge. The ground glass stopper is fine and fits perfectly. As seen in the photos, the label appears very nice visually, despite what I would consider minimal manufacturers imperfections as noted. The bottle sports a few tin air bubbles, a 1/2 inch surface bubble on the top back and mild glass imperfection on the lower back of bottle. The base is boldly embossed with the following: "W N WALTON PATd SEP 23 1862".

An early bottle that displays beautifully!

Offered is recent find from a rural Virginia estate. This is great, 19thC, Country Dentist Dental lot sports three Tooth Keys plus 40 bone handled dental tools. Additionally, there are 13 dark wood dental tools and one ABALONE hand instrument. Other items include a NEY'S GOLD SHELL INSTRUMENT, S.S.W. COPPER AMALGAM box with partial contents, a sharpening file, 4 different size tweezers, and one horse tooth! This Country Dentist apparently extracted more than just human teeth!

The dental instruments are housed in a 19thC box with a lift-out compartment and a drop-down tray, as well as a hidden compartment, all of which are found in the top lid. While not a "labeled" dental item, the box and tools were paired together as a single unit upon discovery, and the combination box and tools actually display quite nicely! The photographs note other miscellaneous items which are original to this collection and are in fairly good, as found condition.

The 3 TOOTH KEYS include 2 with bone handles and are complete and in very good condition. The dark wood handled TOOTH KEY is complete, but its KEY needs to be re-pinned. The 3 keys measure approximately 6 inches long.

The bone-handled instruments are all intact and functional except for two, which appear to have their tips missing. There are a few tools with minor handle splits and two with an ancient wire repair to the handle. The tools show honorable wear such as faint surface wear and imperfections including original patina on the handles and some faint pitting and minute surface rust on the metal components.

The hardwood-handled dental tools are in good condition commensurate with early, used, dental tools.

The handsome, cloth-lined, 19thC, wood case sports a worn, leather and tack-embellished surface and includes a removable, interior tray plus an additional compartment in the top. It measures 19.5" L x 10"W x 5.5"H and is worn but is in structurally, quite good condition. There is no key, and the latches are a bit difficult to open.

The NEY'S GOLD SHELL INSTRUMENT is in very good condition. The S.S.W. COPPER AMALGAM box is complete but worn.

Overall, a very comprehensive and interesting collection of dental tools once used by a rural, Virginia dentist, perfect for your dental artifact museum display!

Offered is a wonderful fancy John Wyeth apothecary bottle sporting a fancy shield shaped foil label. Decorative stock bottles such as this beauty were meant to be refilled and were the pride of the pharmacy staff. Decorative and reflective medicine bottles also served as a form of advertising since they stood out from their competitors.

This 8.5 inch amber example has ground glass construction and dates to the 1920 - 1930 era.

The empty bottle condition is excellent with only a tiny edge fleck of the back lip. The ground glass stopper cannot be removed and appears perfect. The label shows light wear and staining commensurate with age and use. Although the photos of the label appears silver, it is more of a GOLD toned foil. The back label has modest wear and staining.

Hard to find with labels in this nice condition.

Offered is a lovely, delicately hand-painted, frosted-glass, antique, Bradley and Hubbard Brass Wall Lamp from the 1910 era. The Bradley and Hubbard Company out of Meriden, Connecticut, was a well-regarded manufacturer of high quality lamps from 1875 until 1973. This lamp retains a Patent date located on the brass bulb socket of "Nov. 26, 1907". Also, please note the bold trademark "B&H" on the interior of the wall mount.

The perfectly polished brass lamp has an attractive, easy-on-the-eye finish consistent with the warm look of vintage brass. The frosted glass shade sports hand-painted floral and leaf embossing all along the lower edge of the shade.

The lamp measures about 9 inches from the base of the wall mount to the top of the shade. (That is the distance the lamp would be "sticking out" from the wall once installed.) The shade is about 4.25 inches in diameter at its widest point and is about 5 inches in length.

The condition is quite fine noting a desirable, lightly-aged, brass patina. The shade is near-excellent save for various, barely noticeable, faint edge flecks commensurate of an antique shade.

Completely rewired to modern code standards and ready for enjoyment in your home. Would be quite excellently used as a bed-side reading lamp!

Offered is a 1940s era Parke Davis Lung Remedy Cure Glaseptic Nebulizer in unused condition complete with original box.

The box measures 7.5 inches high and is in very good condition with only the usual scuffs, minor crimps and wear from age. The glass nebulizer and parts are complete and appear unused. The orange bulb is flexible and can be squeezed but the brown hose is brittle where it attaches to bulb. The only issue is that the small black cap that fits over the tiny cork has separated from the cork.

Nebulizers such as these were used to provide inhaled medicinals primarily for respiratory ailments.

A neat device for your collection.

Some History:
Although homeopathy has its roots in ancient Greek medicine and in the work of the 16th-century physician Paracelsus, modern homeopathy dates back 200 years to the work of the German doctor and chemist, Samuel Hahnemann. Hahnemann qualified as a physician but ceased to practice as a doctor because of what he saw as the barbaric medical practices of his day - which included bloodletting and the overuse of toxic medicines, leading to horrific side effects.

A brilliant linguist, he earned a living from translating books and was interested by a reference in a medical textbook of the use of China (Peruvian bark) as a cure for malaria. Intrigued to know why China worked, he took doses of the remedy until he himself began to exhibit malarial symptoms. He stopped taking the China and the symptoms went away. From this he deduced that the ancient principle of 'like cures like' actually worked.

His next step was to determine if there were safe levels at which toxic substances could be given - and still cure the type of symptoms that they might otherwise cause. His experiments with dilution led him to discover that the more a substance was diluted, the more potent it appeared to become.

Homeopathic medicine was born, but in practicing it, Hahnemann and his followers were subjected to ridicule and persecution by the medical establishment, despite the fact that they were seeing patients getting better on tiny doses of medicines, prescribed on the basis of 'like cures like'. Many European practitioners immigrated to the United States, where homeopathy flourished in the 19th century – until the medical establishment there systematically acted to remove its influence.

Hahnemann ended his days as a renowned and very busy practitioner in Paris, working into his 80's. He is interred at the Cimetière du Père Lachaise, where a large monument honors him and his discovery of Homeopathy.

Measuring 12.5 inches wide by 8 inches high, this vintage, hand-painted on board, 1940's No Smoking sign is most emphatic in its message: "NO SMOKING MEANS NO SMOKING"! Most definitely a conversation piece! Fab visual display! Condition is good with paint wear to edges as seen in photos. Light pencil lines to guide the hand-painting are still visible on the front of the sign. (The left side of sign appears darker in photos than the right side. This is a function of less-than-perfect photography! Coloration and brightness are uniform throughout! No dark or shadowy areas!)

The third syringe is in good condition but missing the tube portion.

Two early examples of early medical instruments not to be missed.

The Siemens Model M-22, carbon hearing aid was made by Siemens & Halske A. G. of Germany around 1925 (engraved on the back side of the microphone) and was marketed in America under the DUOTONE name by The American Phonophor Corporation of New York.

The double carbon amplifier microphones measure 4¾" x 2⅜" x 7/16" thick. The front view sports two decorative "snowflake" designed ports, and the base has a small swiveling leg for standing on a flat surface. The leather tab is provided so that the hearing device could be attached to a shirt button.

The receiver microphone is attached to both an "ON/OFF" switch and the earpiece via two coiled wires that have a two-pronged end for battery attachment. Please note that the battery is not functional nor does it have the correct ports for receiving the wire prongs...but it came with the case and fits quite nicely!!

The condition is very good with wear commensurate with a well-loved antique.

WIKIPEDIA has some very inetersting info on this style of hearing aid which was produced from the early 1900s till the late 1930s.
