Offered is a delightful 1940s era reverse painted pharmacy sign. This wood framed drug store sign measures 22.5 inches long x 14.5 inches wide.

Quite visually appealing, the sign is in very nice condition with a minor paint spot on the top center above the "L" and one on the top frame. There is light wear on the wood finish as well but it is not obtrusive.

Eli Lilly was a proud manufacturer of proprietary medicines for over a century and often provided signage to drug store owners to both assist in promoting these local pharmacies as well as to advertise their own products.

Offered is a nice group of six, vintage, Munyons and Humphreys Homeopathic Medicines in their original boxes. The two Munyons date to the 1900 era and the Humphreys date to the 1920s. The condition of all is very good.

Of special consideration among the Munyons remedies is the PAW PAW PILLS example, which is the earliest of the grouping. This a wooden vial is surrounded by a colorful paper label and a complete paper insert. The second Munyons remedy box houses a full, glass vial with a metal screw cap and paper insert. They each measure just over 2.5 inches.

Of the four Humphreys remedies, the earliest nostrums are the ones numbered "8" and "31" date to the 1920s. The boxes have paper labels covering them, and include a corked glass vial and paper insert. The Humphreys remedies labeled "3" and "30" date to the 1940, are unopened and contain either a glass or plastic vial. They measure 3 inches.

This is a colorful 1936 series Treasury Department IRS Narcotics form. The document is dated and filed 1947 at Cases Drug Store, Logan Ohio. This decorative record confirms that the narcotic was Codeine Sulphate 1/2 gr. and was purchased by the Rexall Drug Company, Pittsburgh, PA.

The form measures 11" high x 9" wide and is in fine condition except for a 1/2" tear in the upper (R) hand corner (barely seen when framed). Although once common, these decorative documents are getting more difficult to find.

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!

A very cute vintage drug store/pharmacy display from the 1940s era!

This complete display consists of 24, small 'sample' medicine boxes, each of which contain colorful little red pills!

Each box's label includes ingredients described as 'laxative and cathartic’.

Packed by CHANDLER MEDICINE CO. - Office 2812 Dodier Street, ST. LOUIS, MO., the display measures 6" x 5" x 1" and is in unused, very nice condition. ***NOTE*** The left side edges of the box have separated from each corner and the front top panel which serves as the front display when open is partially detached from it's side. While this sounds a bit like the box is damaged, this kind of separation does occur over time and is noted for full disclosure. It is very nice!

What a great collectible for the pharmacist, nurse or doctor in your life!

Offered is an unusual group of 3 Patent Medicines all of which were indicated for issues related to brain function or emotional conditions.

First, is a sample bottle of FLORAPLEXIN prepared by Franklin Hart of New York. The label notes that it is, "A positive cure for Dyspepsia, Liver complaints, NERVOUS EXHAUSTION, & Consumption." Lots of small print on the back noting that if this medicine is used, "you will be cured" of your particular symptoms which include being NERVOUS, IRRITABLE & GLOOMY or having EVIL FOREBODINGS - rather interesting claims not often made by patent medicine producers. Measures about 3 inches, in very good condition.

Second, is a diminutive, corked, 2.75 inch bottle labeled "THE ENSIGN REMEDIES, "Remedy No. 1." The label notes: "For Abnormal Mental States, Fears, Forebodings, Persistent Thoughts and Evil Suggestions". It is quite rare to find medicines that were specifically indicated for the treatment of mental illness. The Ensign Remedies company was from Battle Creek, Michigan, and was mentioned often in the various medical journals published during the late 1800s and early 1900s. The bottle is excellent and the label shows modest wear, loss and fading.

Third, is a very choice, Dr. Schoop's medicine labeled "Restorative Nerve Pills" in a cute 2.5 inch bottle. The label also mentions the following: "For the Cure of Nervousness and Constipation". Additional claims note that the pills are "for the quick relief of Nervousness, Sleeplessness, Trembling, Hysteria, Spasms, and all conditions of the Brain and Nervous System attended by Nervous Excitement, etc.". The medicine is unused and sports a complete, graphic label including bright circular end labels on top and bottom. This well may be a wooden vial but without opening,one cannot be certain. Dates to circa 1900.

These nostrums give credence to "good things come in small packages". A desirable trio indeed!

This wonderful, all-original pair of matching, 19th century, Whital Tatum, hanging, egg-shaped Apothecary show globes each measure approximately 33 inches from top of chain to bottom of fixture. The 3 1/2 gallon size globes have a patent date embossed inside the brass-plated crown on top: "June 16, 1895".

Both blown-glass globes retain their original brass chains and hooks and are in very good condition with the expected, minor, age-related scratches of an antique glass globe. There are no cracks, and the globes hold water just fine! The interior of the glass globes have a mild hazy appearance, notably towards the upper third of glass. The haziness disappears when the globes are filled with colored water.

The iron supporting frames sport brass plating and are most decorative. There is the expected, age-related, modest loss and tarnishing to the brass features with some metal pitting of the interior and top edge of globe hangers noted.

These globes originally hung in the Yalowich Pharmacy in Rochester, New York. They display beautifully and will add the "WOW" factor to any apothecary collection.

This is an unused, "New Old Stock", Pharmacy or Drug Store display from the 1940-1950's era. It is complete with 16 full boxes of "THRIOCAIN LOZENGES". The pink tablets are inside a plastic tube which was prepared for and labeled "James' Drug Co., New London, CT".

This diminutive size display measures 6.25" x 3.75" x 2" closed and is in very nice condition except for some unobtrusive ink scribbling appearing mostly on the top. The cover lifts up to facilitate the advertising of this product and would have been placed on the counter top of a pharmacy in this fashion. A neat find!

The bottles measure 5 inches tall, sport front and back labels and have plastic or bakelite type caps. The condition of all of the bottles is very good with almost no wear!

Each bottle sports a different content label; given the number of bottles in this offering, a comprehensive listing of specific bottle content labels is prohibitive. Instead, please view each of the photos for a representation of the content labeling on these great drug store stock bottles!

The entire grouping all together would make an absolutely stunning addition to one's pharmacy collection!

Offered is a very scarce group of six, Maltbie Chemical Co. medicine bottles of Newark, New Jersey, dating to the early 1900's.

The empty, amber-colored bottles are all in fine condition sporting both handsome front labels as well as decorative cork top labels.

Two bottles measure about 4.25" high and are separately labeled HYDROPIC and UTERINE TONIC (the uterine tonic also mentions the 1906 Food and Drugs Act). Finally, the 6th bottle is a diminutive 3.75" example labeled NIGHT SWEATS.

Overall, the labels are all in very nice condition with only some slight fading to the red print on a few labels. There are minimal scuff marks, scant paper loss and discoloration to the labels as seen in the photos.

A lovely collection.

Offered is a lovely grouping of seven, vintage WITCH HAZEL labels that were acquired at auction in 1997 when the E.E. DICKINSON - WITCH HAZEL COMPANY officially closed its doors in Essex, Connecticut.

These highly-colorful, lithographed paper labels are all UNUSED, NEW OLD STOCK in wonderful condition. Besides manufacturing its own witch hazel under its own name, the E. E. Dickinson Company also packaged the identical witch hazel for a variety of different vendors, such as: S.X.BRAND.N.F., BAILEY'S, and MERRIMACK.

At the time of the auction, all remaining company stock was removed from storage for the factory-closing sale. We believe these labels predate the 1930s. Given the vibrant color and graphic design, these undoubtedly would look fabulous framed!

The 4 large size labels, measuring 10 inches in diameter, were for use on 50 gallon barrels or drums and are offered at $15.00 each. The 3 smaller labels are 8.5 inches in diameter and are offered at $12.00 each.

A framed display of ALL 7 barrel labels together would be quite visually-stunning! With this decorative thought in mind, all 7 labels can also be purchased a single group, offered at $80.00.

This very colorful and detailed pictorial display salutes the achievement of America's First Apothecary General, Boston's Andrew Craigie, commissioned in 1777.

This display is one of a series entitled "The History of Pharmacy in Pictures" produced by Parke Davis in the late 1950's to early 1960's honoring the story of American Pharmacy.

This scene depicts Craigie providing aid during the June 17, 1775, Revolutionary War, Battle of Bunker Hill, Charlestown, Boston, Massachusetts.

This self-framed, white-bordered artwork is constructed of a quality, thick, card board and has a built-in easel on back for displaying. The picture can also be easily framed.

Perfect, intense color throughout - no fading - any glare seen is due to lighting conditions during photography. Measures approximately 21" long x 17.75" wide.
