Apothecary Cabinet

These type cabinets were used by pharmacists and physicians to store medications in the 18th and 19th centuries. The multiple drawers and shelves held all of the necessary accessories including a mortar and pestle, graduate, medicine spoons and scales. By the beginning of the 20th century, these beautiful cabinets went out of style when pre-formed pills and mass-produced packaging took the place of individually measured powders and ointments that were held within these many drawers. This 35 drawer apothecary cabinet measures 54 inches wide, 27 inches high and 15 inches deep. SOLD
