1484/17: A very good and large fully-fitted APOTHECARY'S or MEDICINE BOX in wonderful original condition. Much larger than usual, this substantial box is of solid mahogany, with recessed brass handles and opens to reveal a huge array of bottles and jars, all with good labels and some contents. The six inner drawers contain a wide variety of items including pestle & mortar; scales (2) & weights; pill roller; gorgeous corkscrew; syringes and many further bottles & jars. To the reverse is the secured secret "Poison" drawer complete with five bottles of somewhat harmful substances! Probably the best we have ever had, this measures 18ins high; 12.5 ins wide; 8.5ins deep (45.5 x 32 x 21.5cms) and it weighs a ton!
