About this item
A Beautiful Antique Mahogany Apothecary Spice Chest. Made from Mahogany, with 18 drawers that feature the original drawer label panels, with beautiful wood grain and patina, a piece of quality craftsmanship. C1880
Apothecary chests were commonly used by pharmacists and physicians in the 1800s as a means for storing medications, elixirs and herbs. Some even had nailed or secret compartments for storing poisons and hard-to-find spices. The many drawers were also handy for holding tools, such as a mortar and pestle, spoons and scales.
These superb set of drawers are of good proportion, would look amazing in the kitchen or lounge as storage. A real piece of historical furniture. (Bottom drawer dimensions H:11.5cm W: 27cm D: 8.5cm Top drawers H: 11.5cm W: 9.5cm H: 8.5cm)
