Antique Pine Apothecary Box

325.00

An Apothecary was the early name for a medical professional who dispensed medicines to physicians, surgeons and patients. This is a role which we now know as a chemist.

This beautiful apothecary box is full of character and dates back to the mid 19th century. It has military links, possibly used onboard ships and overseas on military campaigns and would have contained precious medicines for the treatment of sick and wounded military personnel.

The box is complete with glass bottles, measuring vessels, pestles/mortars and military tourniquets which would have been required in the field.
