A cute size that will fit with any collection.
The bottle measures nearly 7.5 inches high and is complete with original contents. The condition of the bottle is very nice with only minor staining to the label next to the letters in the word, BONKORA. Although the box is damaged (see photos), it displays very well as it retains the image of the nude female- an interesting conversation piece!
A bit of history: BONKORA was actually advertised as a weight loss treatment in print advertising, although this usage is not stated on the box. With sales in decline in the late 1930s, the BONKORA manufacturer attempted to make their product a bit more interesting by streamlining the original, bulkier silhouette in their advertising and adding a naked lady on the label. While a clever touch, the product’s popularity continued to wane – perhaps due to a combination of the economics of the Great Depression and the increased federal enforcement of earlier-legislated laws prohibiting unsubstantiated, and wild, curative claims for any and all maladies.
First there is the best of the group in a lovely deep aqua tone that is boldly embossed "VEGETABLE PULMONARY BALSAM" from the CUTLER BROS., BOSTON. Lovely blown in mold example with various tiny in air bubbles during manufacturing. A very nice 6.5" bottle!
Second, a nicely embossed "KEMP'S BALSAM FOR THROAT AND LUNGS" - of "WOODWARD LEROY NY" measuring 5.75". Some interior stains and multiple unobtrusive tiny bubbles.
Finally, a 7.75 inch bottle embossed "DR TAFT'S ASTHMALENE in very good condition. A slight interior haze is the only mentionable issue.
Three lovely bottles indeed!
The larger boxed set contains 38 vials which are nearly empty and sport complete paper labels. There are 2 missing vials from this kit. It measures 6" long x 5" wide x 1.5" high. The inside cover of this larger boxed set lists the names of the 38 allergens contained in the kit.
The small boxed set contains 28 corked top vials which have the same type paper labels as found in the larger kit. This kit measures 5" long x 2" wide x 1.5" high and is missing (or never had) 8 vials.
These skin sensitivity testing kits contain vials which are specific to the southern California area.
A scarce duo indeed!
Measuring about 3 inches square, this circa 1920s - 1930s vintage tin is an unusual find.
The condition of the tin is good, commensurate with its age. Unobtrusive wear and paint loss do not detract from this hard to find tin .
Great for your pharmacy collection!
The 12 inch tall powder bottle has an open pontil on the base and sports a ground glass stopper, and is in fine condition with edge chips to the stopper as seen in the photo.
It is part of an unusual collection of 6 similar bottles that are offered for sale, some of which are etched WITTE’S PATENT 11/14/76. This particular bottle IS etched with this patent information.
In 20 years of specializing in pharmacy and apothecary antiquities, this is the first time that I have seen this version of a HAND PAINTED apothecary bottle!
This 10.5 inch tall bottle with this desirable design would have been specially ordered.
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 mouth of the posterior mouth. The glass label is complete, has crackled paint and displays well.
A lovely example of form and function.
Each vial measures approximately 1.5 inches in length including the cork. The vials are nestled in the leather case, with most vials sporting a hand written label on the top of the cork. The fitted case measures 7.5" long x 2" wide x 3.5" high and shows honorable wear commensurate with age and use. Modest wear and loss to the case edges is noted with separation of 2 flaps, specifically the top left flap and middle left flap.
The many vials include a very desirable example labeled 30 CANNAB IND (cannabis indica). Other vials include: BELLAD, ACID PHOS, ALOES, MAGN. C., LYCOP, ZINC M., STAPH. to name a few.
A wonderful representation of late 19th century homeopathic medicine!
First there is "OXYGENAQUA" AKA "The Compound Oxygen Water" is for the treatment of bowel complaints. This 8.25 inch example dates to the 1890s and sports a fairly good though faded and worn very legible label. On the back is bold embossing that includes the full compounds name and fancy "SP" in the center. No damage.
Next there is an aqua lung and cold tonic named "SCOTT'S EMULSION" measuring 9.25 inches. The circa 1910 bottle is fine and supports a soiled and worn legible label. The back boasts of wonderful embossing that includes the remedy name and a weary fisherman hoisting a rather large cod fish that would be considered a massive catch by today's standards!
Thirdly is a popular size "VAPO-CRESOLINE" poison bottle complete with 90% of its label and much of its contents. Dates to 1910.
A terrific trio of yesterdays nostrums!
This diminutive example measures 3.5 inches high with the cork. The bottle is fine and the labels are mildly stained. A small lower left portion missing on the front label adds to the character.

Interestingly, there is one VETERINARY vial labeled ARECOLINE HYDROBROMIDE POISON by Mulford.
The diminutive vials measure from 2 inches long to 3 inches and are all in good condition. Imperfections noted: one vial has a tiny chip to the mouth of the tube and another vial has a minor crack near the cork.
Interesting grouping to add to your collection!
This cute size display measures 4.5" x 3.75" closed and is in very nice condition. The top lifts up to facilitate advertisement of the product and would have been placed on the counter top of a pharmacy in this fashion. A neat find!
First there is the scarce 8.5 inch example labeled "BROWN'S YORKAS COMPOUND", Lyme, NH. This choice bottle sports a worn and stained label packed with details to cure pulmonary ailments, conumption, dropsy and general debility. No damage though various interior and one exterior air bubbles noted.

A desirable grouping!
The mirror front has a age-faded salmon colored border surrounding an image of a person's face with protruding tongue, about to swallow a "NR" (Nature's Remedy)tablet. The fading makes it a challenge to read the following which is imprinted around the circumference of the mirror: "Take One Tonight - You'll feel Better In The Morning."
"Better Than Pills For Liver Ills - Get a 25 Cent Box"
Original mirrored backing is in very fine condition with just a few very minute, superficial scratches.

An interesting little advertising piece!
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!
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.
