Offered is a fabulous, eye-appealing, one-pan balance scale sporting a marble top and an extraordinarily decorative, chrome-plated, iron base.

The chrome surfaced top front name plate reads: "The MICROMETER Patented Mar. 22 - 1898 / Jul. 21 - 1903. The Dodge Scale Co. 11th Ave. & 20th St. New York."

This fancy balance scale utilizes a novel-designed, weighted beam that turns a moveable weight resulting in great accuracy.

The attractive, liquid, bubble level is fully functional. The plated pan measures 9 inches in diameter. The chrome-plated base measures 12.75 inches L x 5.5 inches W. The height of the scale measures 9.75 inches high with the pan in place.

Overall, the condition notes minimal surface rust and chrome loss mostly to the scale mechanism. The marble is undamaged, with mild rust stain and minor surface scuffs. There are some minimal, unobtrusive areas of loose or peeling chrome. Condition and patina are commensurate with age and use of an antique apothecary scale.

The fusion of ingenuity of design and function combined with quality and accuracy sets this scale apart from its contemporaries and makes it a perfect, present-day apothecary collectible.

Still works perfectly!

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 scarce, Civil War era, clear glass, hand-blown apothecary bottle sporting an appealing label under glass label that is marked 'SPIR. AETH. NIT.'. The pontilled base, ground glass stopper, and stunning gold gilt label make this bottle very desirable!

The condition of this 10 inch tall bottle is excellent. The label has a few tiny edge flecks, a small chip on the lower right hand corner, and an unobtrusive, top-to-bottom crack on the right side that runs through the letter 'T'. As seen in the photos, the label appears very nice visually, despite what I would consider minimal damage.

An early bottle that displays beautifully!

Offered is a very rare, highly ornate and meticulously detailed, 1887, medicine advertising mirror made for the G.G. Green Pharmaceutical Manufacturer of Woodbury, New Jersey. It features 3 PATENT MEDICINES, patent-owned and offered by Surgeon, Colonel G.G. Green. (brief Bio below)

This gorgeous advertising mirror was gifted to select pharmacists who were required to sign a contract promising to consistently offer the particular Green's medicines that were imprinted on the mirror's frame: Green's August Flower, Ague Conqueror, and Boschee's German Syrup.

The frame measures 21" square with an elaborately embellished decorative face of embossed detailing and is constructed of a plaster-based material. The name "G.G. Green, Woodbury, NJ" is prominently embossed on the bottom portion of the frame.

The frame's construction remains quite sturdy. The overall condition is good with some restoration required, if so desired, to the missing pieces as seen in the photos. The missing pieces cause minimal distraction from the beauty, intricacy and rarity of this frame. The mirror had been replaced at some point prior to our ownership.

A brief biography: Colonel George Gill Green served as a Union surgeon during the Civil War and later became a manufacturer of patent medicines. He reached millionaire status after buying the rights to Ague Conqueror, Boschee's German Syrup and Green's August Flower and then, successfully marketing their use. A local philanthropist, he provided the funding for the construction of Woodbury's Opera House. He also built the G.G. Green Manufacturing building, and both structures are now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Offered is a very visually-appealing grouping of new-old-stock, patent medicines and remedies from the early 1900s to the 1940s.

First is a bottle of MOTHERS FRIEND which was an external treatment for "massaging the skin and tired, aching muscles". The 6 inch box houses an unlabeled bottle with a 1949 copyright paper insert. The condition is fine for the bottle and good for the box. The box, while featuring interesting graphics, has one top flap that is partially attached with old tape with some oil stains noted. The box notes that both men and women could use this emollient, while the insert specifically mentions use for females only.

Second is a 2.25 inch tin of Dr. Pierce's ANTISEPTIC and HEALING SUPPOSITORIES. The tin has an appealing graphic and is in unused condition. Mild scuff marks and scratches as well as a small portion of paint loss by Dr. Pierce's name is noted, with a mild stain on the lower backside apparent. Overall, this circa 1940s tin displays very well.

Thirdly, is the early C1900s, PISO'S TABLET "HEALING ASTRINGENT TONIC" which was used as a local treatment for inflammation, leucorrhea, ulceration, skin affections and more. Measuring 2.75 inches tall and sporting a visually-graphic label housing that houses a wood container make this medicine quite appealing!

Finally, is the diminutive medicine marked "LYDIA PINKHAM'S TABLETS" from the 1940s. This female-specific treatment sports a 3 inch box with both bottle and insert that are in very nice condition.

Offered is a very scarce boxed set of late 19th century Homeopathic medicine vials, most of which still retain their contents. The box is made of cardboard covered by a thin layer of what appears to be leatherette.

The box is mildly worn commensurate with age and use, with some tape holding the top sides together. It measures 5.5"L x 3.75"W x 3.5"H.

Twenty three of the 24 bottles retain their contents, with the one bottle displaying a dark cork being empty and broken (parts of the glass from this broken vial are stuck to the box interior compartment). The vials measure just over 3 inches tall including corks and sport handwritten labels, most of which are legible (a few are faded and illegible).

Overall a very unusual find when you consider that the contents remain.

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 describing 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 traditional medical establishment 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.
