1854/18: A fine and fully fitted early/mid-19th century mahogany APOTHECARY'S BOX (or medicine cabinet) of compact size. The solid mahogany case with its recessed military-style handle to the top, opens with twin doors to the front to display three sections of bottles, all with labels, and two drawers below with further labelled bottles; pestle & mortar; scales & weights and other medical items. To the rear is the "secret" section with four bottles of "poison" ~ all labelled but thankfully without their contents! A pretty and complete example. 10.5ins (26.75cms) high.

c.1840
