Please note that the mortar and pestle pictured on the right side--as seen in the first photo--has been sold.

This wonderful, 1940-1950s vintage hand made and painted mortar and pestle display once adorned the interior of a Connecticut pharmacy. The display is decorated in red with painted bronze details for added flair.

Measures about 7 high” x 4.5” wide and is in very nice condition! Some unobtrusive surface paint loss and scuffing including a few tiny nail holes are apparent but do not distract from their visual appeal!

This is a very nice example of a Lowell, Massachusetts, patent medicine complete with box.

The 8.5 inch bottle is in fine condition and sports a label only on the side panel because it is embossed on the remaining three sides. The bottle label is almost complete with modest staining from content leakage.

This medicine retains its original, very decorative box which notes a 1915 date-- apparently when this "new" box was first introduced to the public in August of that year. The box is complete and in good condition noting modest content stain, mostly on the left panel.

Ayer's Sarsaparilla was actually a quack medicine first introduced in the mid 19th century, with no real evidence of therapeutic value, and in that regard, quite similar to many other medicines of that era. Sarsaparilla, J.C. Ayer's most popular product, was cited as a real blessing to humanity in that it purified the blood, stimulated the vital functions, restored and preserved health, and infused new life and vigor throughout the whole system!! Sarsaparilla was also recommended for jaundice, dyspepsia, pimples, boils, ringworm, female weaknesses and ‘lassitude and debility peculiar to the Spring.'

Direct from a southern CT collection, we are proud to offer a very seldom found 19th century apothecary powder folder. Powder folders were used to facilitate the packaging of medications by inserting powder into folded paper packets.

This nickel-plated example sports an appealing form secured on a circular iron base. Measuring just over 5 inches high, this pharmacy gem is complete and demonstrates the mildly worn and aged patina commensurate with a tool of the trade of this vintage and use. The knob works fine, and the apparatus's “wings” open and close easily.

Offered is an unused, vintage "sex" ointment purported to be a desensitizing agent for men.

This cleverly named product came in a diminutive tube measuring 3.5 inches long with its carton a mere 4 inches long. Supposedly, by following directions and using "at the right time", this ointment would measure up to its full potential.

Dates to the 1950's - 1960's era and is in very good condition.

This antiquated medicine with inert contents is meant for display ONLY and NOT meant for use.

A GREAT conversation piece!

Offered is a very interesting, unused, Kayden Fully Automatic Insulin Injector complete with the original display case and packaging materials.

The chrome plated injector is in mint condition and resides inside its plastic case. The patent #2295849 dates this unusual tool of the trade to 1942. Measuring 4.75" long, the injector barrel displays the imprinted patent date and other info (see photo).

The injector was an alternative device that was employed by those patients who preferred not to use the typical needle and syringe. As a precision instrument, the user was able to adjust the depth of injection, and then the device, once user-activated, injected the insulin. Voila!

Not sure of the level of popularity this device held, but this is the only one I have seen.
