We are excited to offer this handsome, traveling, doctor's apothecary medicine chest from the 1870-1880 era.

This fine, walnut, twenty-five compartment case houses twenty three medicine bottles, most of which are embossed FRASER & CO, with a few marked FRASER. A total of seventeen of the bottles sport original, early labels. Three other bottles have hand-written labels, and the remainder are unlabeled- one of which has no embossing. There are a total of six amber bottles, two of which are corked and without labels, while four are complete, inclusive of paper labels. Some of the bottles are partially filled with tablets. Please see photos to view the various medicine labels, one of which is OPIUM.

The walnut cabinet measures 11" W x 10.5" D x 6.25" H, and is in nice condition with a split on the front top that can be restored if desired. The finish has a lovely, warm patina, and the brass escutcheon bears just the right amount of oxidation. A wonderful addition to any collection!

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 a group of six, very scarce, 19th century, tin, apothecary, storage containers with hand-painted, gold gilt labels and a decorative and stylized floral, front embellishment. The gold gilt labels make these early pharmacy canisters really stand out!

The tins sport an early and original, hand-painted, mustard-colored surface patina. The five smaller containers measure approximately 7 inches high x 4 inches wide x 5 inches deep (front to back including the distinctive front floral embellishment). The one large container measures about 8 inches high x 5 inches wide x 5 inches deep.

Structurally, the canisters are very solidly crafted containers, each with a slanted, well-fitting, hinged cover that snaps into place when closed. There are unobtrusive dings, and the finish shows modest wear and paint loss commensurate with a 19th century, well-loved and well-used, dispensary antique.

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!

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.

Condition: Mild, unobtrusive wear to the paper. The blue round label is affixed to the glass, not the actual paper. The frame retains 2 early holes used for hanging along with various surface dings and an early slice of wood missing from the right side of frame.

Historically, Pabst's Okay Specifics was cited by the 1906 FDA Act for various violations including failure to mention alcohol content, having no known curative ingredient, etc, resulting in frequent seizure and destruction of the product!

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 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.

Offered is a interesting trio of vintage 1890 to 1910, medicine bottles for the treatment and cure of lung ailments, cough, colds, general debility and more!

First, is "OXYGENAQUA", AKA "The Compound Oxygen Water" by Starkey Palen for the treatment of bowel complaints. This 8.25 inch example dates to the 1890s and sports a fairly good and very legible, though faded and worn, label. The back of the bottle features bold embossing that includes the full compound's name with a fancy "SP" in the center. No damage.

Next, is an aqua-colored glass, lung and cold tonic called "SCOTT'S EMULSION", measuring 9.25 inches. The circa 1910 bottle is in fine condition and supports a soiled and worn but legible label. The back boasts of wonderful embossing that includes the remedy's name and a weary fisherman hoisting a rather large cod fish that would be considered a massive catch by today's standards!

Third, is a popular size "VAPO-CRESOLINE" POISON bottle complete with 90% of its label! "Vapo-Cresolene" was a form of coal-tar that was used in a special vaporizer and marketed as a cure for numerous respiratory diseases, including pneumonia, whooping cough and diphtheria beginning in 1879. Although the company's claims were debunked by the American Medical Association in 1908, this product and its vaporizers, amazingly, continued to be sold as late as the 1940s! This bottle dates to 1910.

A terrific trio of yesterday's nostrums!

Offered for sale is a highly decorative, 19th century apothecary bottle labeled "TALCUM", sporting a hand-painted, glass, recessed label!

This large, 10.5 inch tall bottle with such a very desirable design would not have been a stock bottle but instead would have been a special order from the manufacturer.

This label under glass (LUG) wide mouth bottle is in fine condition. The stylish, knobby-shaped stopper sports ground glass construction and fits perfectly! There is one tiny edge chip on the back-edge of the bottle mouth. The glass label is complete, has crackled paint and displays quite well.

Offered is a very nice, vintage, drug store, Bromo Seltzer Dispenser with a patent date of 1930.

This popular and very recognizable, pharmacy collectible is constructed of a cobalt blue glass base with an aluminum stand that sports an old bottle of Bromo Seltzer retaining a label dating to 1987. The stand measures just over 15 inches high including the bottle.

The condition is commensurate with a used pharmacy device. The base shows wear with various scratches, and the metal is tarnished. The dispenser mechanism rotates and functions properly. The piece was in storage for many years and retains its original, "as-found" patina. A very nice find!

Some history:
The Bromo Seltzer product takes its name from a component of the original formula, sodium bromide. Bromides are a class of tranquilizers that were withdrawn from the U.S. market in 1975 due to their toxicity. Their sedative effect probably accounted for Bromo-Seltzer's vast popularity back in the day as THE go-to remedy for hangovers!

Offered is a nice grouping of four, early, circa 1900 to 1920s, EMPTY, pharmacy drugstore Patent Medicines from the DIRECT SALES CO. of Buffalo, NY.

First, is the amber-colored, 4.75 inch tall bottle labeled CHOLERA INFANTUM NO.176 which sports an excellent label.

Third, is a 5.25 inch, clear, medicine bottle that has a near-perfect label marked "AMENORRHOEA C.C.T.". Condition is very good.

Fourth, is a POISON labeled "ANODYNE INFANTS NO.2 C.T." in a 4 inch bottle. It sports a tiny NARCOTIC 1 cent stamp on the back, as well as an embossing on two sides similar to the cathartic bottle. A tiny chip on the front lip and some loss to the label are noted. A nice collection from an obscure Buffalo N.Y. pharmaceutical company of the early 1900s.

A delightful quartet!

Some history:

Direct Sales Company had various convictions imposed upon them during the 1940s. As their name states, they were a direct sales company of pharmaceuticals which included narcotics. The company illegally supplied many doctors from small practices the opportunity to purchase Morphine Sulfate. The physicians purchased thousands of doses with the intent to sell to both their patients and established addicts. Ultimately, the discrepancy between the high volume of pills provided to doctors in relation to the much smaller numbers of "patients" served didn't add up and prosecutions began.

Offered is an absolutely wonderful, lathe-turned, late 19th century, apothecary's SEIDLITZ POWDER MEASURE CUP.

This beautifully-formed, two-sized measure sports a lovely, deep, honey-colored patina. The cup measures just under 5 inches high and is in very nice condition. The wood used to craft this lovely piece contains a natural, narrow, 1 inch long, vertical blemish at the base of the smaller cup (see 7th & 9th photos). The craftsman who created this piece was clearly highly skilled as he was able to work around this natural wood blemish to create a fully-functional apothecary tool.

Some history:
During the 19th century and into the early 20th century, Seidlitz powders, which were used to treat indigestion and constipation, came to the drugstore in bulk, and dosages were measured out using the measure cup.
The pharmacist then dispensed the powders for the customer in small envelopes containing two, colored paper wraps, one white and one blue. The white packets contained tartaric acid, and the blue packets contained a mixture of 75% Rochelle salt (potassium sodium tartrate) and 25% baking soda (sodium bicarbonate).
The customer then was instructed to dissolve the powdery contents of each packet separately in water. and then combine them together. When mixed together, the remedy gave off carbon dioxide with a characteristic fizzing sound. The medicinal drink was described as "a cooling, agreeable draught".
