Offered is a wonderful, vintage 1920s, mini-drugstore, Hypodermic Medicine Traveling Case. Gone are the days when doctors would make home visits to their patients, but back when they did, portable, pocket-size cases such as this would be part of their treatment arsenal.

Measuring about 3.5 inches long, this case most likely contained medicines to help with treating chest pain. The pills were easy to dissolve in water, then filled into the syringe and quickly injected.

The case appears to be made of aluminum and opens perfectly (like a vintage cigarette lighter). The condition is very good with some scuffs, mostly on the top.

The 2.5cc size glass and chrome plated metal syringe is in very good condition, measures about 3 inches long, and sports a barrel that withdraws smoothly.

The six, EMPTY vials each have complete labels and corks and are in good condition. Three are from Eli Lilly, each labeled NITROGLYCERIN. The three others are from SHARPE AND DOHME and are labeled GLYCERYLIS NITRAS. There are no needles.

A very nice, 1920's piece of pharmacy and medical history.
