Offered is a rare, ONE OF A KIND set of early 1900s Apothecary Bottles w/ Herbs from the ALEMEDA DRUG STORE, DENVER COLORADO.

The bottles are in fine shape with ground glass stoppers in place. The labels are in very good condition with crimps, stains and mild edge loss as expected with vintage bottles that have been used. This set should be in a museum!

This is a complete, hard to find pharmacy “KONSEAL FILLING and CLOSING APPARATUS” that was used by early 20th century druggists.

The machine was made by The J. M. Grosvenor Co., Boston, and was the most widely used cachet preparation device in American pharmacies.

The condition of this wonderful apothecary tool of the trade is very good, complete with the warm, rich patina one would expect of an antique of this age including the usual scratches, marks and unobtrusive dings and tarnish. The metal parts appear to be nickel plated, and the case is of a hard wood construction. The metal KONSEAL apparatus, when open, measures approximately 18”L x 10”W x 2” H. Note that there is interior and exterior age damage in the center of the wooden case that includes a hairline split in the center. The photos should help better identify this description.

The accessories appear to be complete when compared to the images seen in the directions that is glued to the inside case and my reference text. There are 3 packets with paper directions for patient use.

The interior divider has some minor separation of joints that does not distract from this set.

A must addition for any pharmacy/apothecary collection.

Offered for your consideration is a vintage, all-original, framed paper advertising sign for the cure of Gonorrhea, Gleet and Syphilis in men. Of interest is the matching 10.5" x 7.5" wood frame with the lightly stamped word "OKAY" on the top. This unusual piece of advertising dates to the early 1900's.

Some History from the Derby Connecticut Historical Society:

ALBERT W. PHILLIPS, M. D. was born at Marcellus, N. Y., July 26, 1838, his early education having been secured in the common schools of his native town.

He graduated from the Hannemann Homeopathic College, Chicago, Ill., in 1861.

At the commencement of the Rebellion, he enlisted as a private in the 12th Regiment, New York State Volunteers, but was later appointed hospital steward of the same regiment, and later received the appointment of assistant surgeon of the 149th Regiment New York Volunteers. He served until the close of the war, when he moved to Birmingham. He held the office of registrar of vital statistics, and also was an influential member of the Board of Burgess for several years. He was the only follower of the school "similia similibus curantur" in the town, and had a large and lucrative practice.

Offered is a circa 1920s, four-tier, clear glass Apothecary Show Globe. Stacking show globes such as this have always been a highly sought after apothecary artifact for those building a venerable collection of old pharmacy items. This lovely, 26 inch tall example is a visual statement piece- one to be admired for years to come.

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!

Offered are 2 nice Colorado pharmacy bottles that date to the 1910-1920 era.

The first clear glass medicine bottle is embossed "The Blose Drug Co Leadville, Colorado. Etc. It is marked "Klondike A.M.T. & CO." on the base. It measures just under 6.5 inches tall and except for some mild interior hazing, is in fine condition. No nicks or scratches.

Overall a neat pair of older Colorado drug store bottles.

The inhalation of medicinal vapors was common practice during the late 19th and early 20th century. Inhaling devices came in many shapes and forms. This very decorative and functional inhaler was very popular during that period.

This lovely, late-Victorian-styled inhaler is primarily being sold for its original box. The box is complete and very detailed on all sides (including the top), sporting wonderful graphics and information on its many merits. The box measures 6.5" H x 4" W x 3.25" D and shows only mild wear and faint staining. Finding a complete box in this condition is quite uncommon.

The lamp is not complete and is minus its chimney and top medicinal pan.

The advertising says it all - great graphic and lung specific. The last patent date noted on the box is 1899, and the first patent date is stamped on the lamp as being Ag. (August) 4, 1885.

Offered is a massive, circa 1908, Dispensatory drug reference book packed with a wealth of information used by pharmacists and physicians of the early 20th century.

The leather-bound volume features over 2000 pages in total and includes a Preface, Glossary, Index of Diseases, an in depth discussion of the 1906 FOOD and DRUG ACT, the Food and Drug Index and more. 1,947 pages are devoted to informing the practitioner of diseases and the drugs used to treat them, as well as drug origins, uses, chemistry, effects, dosing, etc. This text serves as a fabulous resource to both the collector and researcher.

This volume measures 10.5"L x 8"W x 4.5"H and is missing the first few pages that would normally include the copyright. The condition is generally fair to good with a few front pages that are crimped, folded or torn. Various pages have small partial folds, and the spine is separated from the binding. The leather binding is modestly worn primarily on the edges. Other than the initial missing pages, the book is complete and shows honorable wear commensurate with its modest use and age.

A wonderful historical resource for a pharmacy library collection!
