Perhaps the holy grail of quality made and rare 19th century pharmacy tools of the trade. This beauty sports an attractive brass label, has nickel plated embellishments and 3 steel moulds. One mould has attached brass compressor plates for sealing the powder filled medicine bread like wafers. Cachets provided the early pharmacist the means to accurately fill wafers with the proper dose and to enhance production.

Mould construction is of high end components and will serve well as the centerpiece of any collection. Measures 9 1/2" L x 6" W x 1" H and weighs over 5 pounds. Very nice condition, lovely patina and undamaged.

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!

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.

Fresh from a multi-generation New England estate are two matching, stacking, 19th century, wooden pantry boxes.

They were originally assembled using glue, wooden pegs, and square head nails, although many of these were replaced at some point with early round head nails.

Condition is quite good with some age-related separation of wood as seen in photos---nothing that disturbs the structural integrity or visual appeal of this very early pair. Both retain wonderful, all-original patina. Please see photos for a fine representation of all angles and insides and outsides of both boxes. The covers of both boxes fit nicely despite the crooked appearance suggested in my photos!

Measurements are 6 inch diameter by 2.5 height and 5.5 inch diameter by 2 inch height. The smaller box fits nicely into the larger or they may be stacked one atop the other for display!

The powder folder device was used by early pharmacists to fold powders into a size that would fit neatly and uniformly in the dispensing box.

This scarcely-found, tool-of-the-trade is made of brass and is identified as a 'sawbuck' style in trade catalogs. The piece is stamped 'S. Maw Son & Thompson - LONDON - 11 & 12 Aldersgate St.'.

Measuring a tad under 4 inches high at full height, the folder is about 2.5 inches wide and sports an adjustable ratchet on one side to accommodate different size papers. The condition is very good with patina commensurate of a used pharmacy antiquity. Dates to the late 19th century.

This is a wonderfully preserved, wooden, circa 1910, MEDICINES sign from the now-closed Pierce Pharmacy, of Hartford, Connecticut. The Pierce Pharmacy first opened at the turn of the 20th century and remained in the same location for nearly 100 years.

The last owner of this store purchased the Pierce Pharmacy in the early 1960s. He has retained this original store sign in his personal collection for many years, which attests to the present condition.

The sign has a sand painted black background with silver lettering and trim. Measures over 76 inches long by 11.5 inches wide. Overall condition is very good. A fabulous, one-of-a-kind piece of advertising!

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.
