This lovely tip tray has striking lithography. The image on this fabulous early 1900s pharmacy collectible speaks for itself. The graphics are in the Art Nouveau style and delightfully grace the tray.

The company notes that their tablets could treat numerous symptoms and conditions especially womens ills. It enjoys crossover appeal in that it is also a 1904 World's Fair souvenir and an advertisement for the drug company - what a wonderful giveaway!

The Antikamnia ("Opposed to Pain") Chemical Company of St. Louis, Missouri, produced medicines similar to aspirin and were famous for their very graphic calendars that were given to physicians as tokens for prescribing their products.

. Measuring 3.25"W x 4.75L", this cutie is in very nice condition. The image is clear with minor surface wear commensurate with its age.

Offered for consideration, is a wonderful and rarely found, 19th century American "DENTIST" sign in brass measuring 12 3/4ths inches wide x 7 inches high.

The sign advertises the office of "James H. Groom. Dentist.", and remains in fine condition with deep-toned, original patina and with some very minor warping due to its many years of age. The lettering is actually impressed into the surface and is painted black. Any white marks appearing on the front of the sign are due only to light/sun reflection---the sign has a very even-toned coloration.

The sign has a hole at each corner to facilitate hanging, or it may be easily displayed upon a shelf!

A fabulous , rich-looking display piece with great "eye appeal"!

Prior to the 1880s, Dr. Robert Fuller of New York, developed the method of making tablet triturates. Fuller described it as "A new device for putting medicine into a form that should admit an accurate, easy, compact and palatable administration". The tablets which were also known as "molded tablets", were made from a paste like mixture of the drug. The making of tablet triturates was a process easily adapted for use in the local pharmacy and most druggists of the late 19th century and early 20th century prepared the tablets using the small molds.

This tablet mold is a wonderful ONE GRAIN example of and early pharmacy "tool of the trade" and should not be missed by the novice or advanced collector. The mold is complete with the original box and in very nice condition except for minor surface wear that is commensurate with mild use and age. Also note that an unobtrusive dime size piece of the the label near the middle left portion of box is missing (unable to get an adequate picture). The box measures 6.5 inches long x 3 inches wide and shows mild wear. Don't miss this beauty! Dates from 1890 - 1900.

The inhalation of medicinal vapors was common practice during the late 19th and early 20th century. Inhaling devices came in many shapes and forms. This very decorative and functional inhaler was very popular during that period.

This lovely, late-Victorian-styled inhaler is primarily being sold for its original box. The box is complete and very detailed on all sides (including the top), sporting wonderful graphics and information on its many merits. The box measures 6.5" H x 4" W x 3.25" D and shows only mild wear and faint staining. Finding a complete box in this condition is quite uncommon.

The lamp is not complete and is minus its chimney and top medicinal pan.

The advertising says it all - great graphic and lung specific. The last patent date noted on the box is 1899, and the first patent date is stamped on the lamp as being Ag. (August) 4, 1885.

Offered is a wonderful LEECH jar that comes from a doctor's collection in southern CT.

This specimen dates to circa 1900 and is most likely German in origin. The company, PETER VAN SCHAAK & SONS, of Chicago, Illinois, was the American supplier of this type leech jar in the 1890 - 1916 period.

A production number "8" is noted on the inside rim. The jar sports three knobs, or string ties, to secure the lid. Made of white porcelain, this quart-size beauty stands 7.5 inches high x 5.5 inches wide (inclusive of the knobs) and measures just over 4" in diameter.

The condition is excellent with minor wear to the black lettering commensurate with its age.

Medicinal bloodletting is one of the most ancient of medical practices dating back thousands of years, with historical evidence noting its use in ancient Egypt, Rome and Greece. Bloodletting was based on an ancient system of medicine in which blood and other bodily fluids were considered to be "humors", and the proper balance of these "humors" were what maintained health. The concept that bloodletting could restore the "humors" to their proper balance was widely accepted, and the application of leeches to the body was one method of bloodletting that was practiced. By the 19th century, the use of leeches in this practice had reached its zenith, and vessels such as the one offered here were used to store the leeches when not in use.

Some History from the Derby Connecticut Historical Society:

ALBERT W. PHILLIPS, M. D. was born at Marcellus, N. Y., July 26, 1838, his early education having been secured in the common schools of his native town.

He graduated from the Hannemann Homoepathic College, Chicago, Ill., in 1861.

At the commencement of the Rebellion, he enlisted as a private in the 12th Regiment, New York State Volunteers, but was later appointed hospital steward of the same regiment, and later received the appointment of assistant surgeon of the 149th Regiment New York Volunteers. He served until the close of the war, when he moved to Birmingham. He held the office of registrar of vital statistics, and also was an influential member of the Board of Burgess for several years. He was the only follower of the school "similia similibus curantur" in the town, and had a large and lucrative practice.

Offered for your consideration is a fabulous, large size, 19th century apothecary bottle sporting a fancy gold & black lettered painted glass label marked “P. ALOE. et CAN.”!

This hand blown, 12 inch tall bottle has a deep pontilled base and is in fine condition. The ground glass stopper has a few unobtrusive interior edge chips.

The label under glass (LUG) applied label is in very good condition, complete and some minor ‘crackling’ of the painted surface.

When viewing the glass label "in person", it is quite appealing and displays beautifully. Please note that the elongated, reddish mark seen on the label is a function of poor photography - it is only a reflection of another object in the room- and not a stain!
