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!

On a cold October day in 1977, an auction of the former estate of Dr. T.D.M. Wilson of Washington, Pennsylvania, took place. The last surviving relative to live in Dr. Wilson's former 1890 mansion had moved to smaller quarters, and many artifacts reflecting the Wilson's family history had to be auctioned off.

Dr. T.D.M. Wilson graduated from Jefferson Medical College in 1875, and the following offered items from this estate auction provide an historical glimpse into his long medical career.

The first item is a fabulous 19th century brass DOCTOR T.D.M. Wilson sign measuring 14L x 9W inches, which likely adorned the entrance way to Dr. Wilson's office.

Also offered in this grouping is a rare group photo of Dr. Wilson (4th from the left) and other Phi Kappa Sigma members. The frame measures 16.5"L x 12.5"W. While the photo is a bit faded, the image is remarkable and includes a distinguished group of Phi Kappa Sigma members.

The third and fourth items in this grouping are a small, framed, 1909 AMA membership certificate with Dr. Wilson's name inscribed, and a very unusual IRS narcotic SPECIAL TAX STAMP from 1926. This Narcotic form is unique in that it names Dr. Wilson as the single physician allowed to dispense narcotics within the 23rd District of the State of Pennsylvania.

Finally, 2 handwritten letters postmarked in 1884 from Dr. Wilson to his loving wife are included, offering a small glimpse into his personal life.

Together, this is rich grouping of artifacts provides one a unique opportunity to further enhance one's collection of medical objects.

Offered for sale is a wonderful late 19th century, Victorian drugstore, medical advertising cup. This lovely porcelain mug has “CUDAHY’S REXOMA” printed on the lip. Beautifully hand painted pink roses and other lavender colored flowers adorn the cup on all surfaces.

The Cudahy meat packing industry dates back to the turn of the century. The Cudahy meat industry, with stockyards in Omaha, Chicago, Sioux City and Los Angeles produced the REX brand of fine beef and pork products. They also produced lard, soaps and patent medicine products such as Cudahy's Essence of Pepsin and Cudahy's Rexsoma that used the animal byproducts. The patent medicines were marketed as nutritional supplements for improved health.

This 3.5 inch tall undamaged beauty is in very good condition and very classy indeed!

A terrific image on a lovely cup that can be easily displayed anywhere in your collection.

Please enjoy this graphically-appealing, early 20th century, veterinary advertising poster.

ZULICH'S POWDER was a "Blood, Alternative and Tonic" used for the treatment of horses, cattle and swine, with the company taking pride in advertising its purity and reliability. In fact, the manufacturer stated that it even "contains nothing that will bloat, stiffen, or produce Dropsical affections"!

While I can't confirm or deny whether or not this vet medicine was effective, I can attest that the poster measures 14" high by 11" wide. There are 4 unobtrusive edge tears measuring approx. 1/2 inch, a minor crimp by the letter 'r' in sulphur, and minor losses to three corners, all commensurate with age and minimal use. The sign is made of a quality heavy paper sporting a small brass grommet in the top center for hanging. Framing will further enhance this interesting piece of vintage advertising.

This rare and unusual, finely constructed, Civil War Era, portable Field Surgeon's Operating or Gleason type Mortuary Table (also known as a Cooling Table) comes from the estate of a 4th generation New England medical doctor, and retains its original finish with wonderful patina.

The decorative and delicate detailing of this piece is at odds with its most gruesome history! Scalloped copper edge guards and the appealing pattern in which the drainage holes in the laminated wood tabletop were laid out contribute to visual appeal. The softwood table frame stands on nicely turned hardwood legs.

When opened and extended to its maximum dimensions, the table measures 72" long X 18.5" wide X 22" high. To facilitate ease of traveling, this portable table slides and folds to 40" long X 18.5" wide X 4" high. A leather carrying handle is attached to the table edge; legs, when folded, are secured in place with hooks.

Very fine original condition: expected overall wear (patina) with one hook missing and minor unobtrusive loss of laminate along lower table top edge measuring approximately 1/3” wide by 7”.

Measuring just 2 inches high, this rarely found, blown-in-mold, 19th century, clear glass bleeding or cupping glass is in excellent condition.

Extensively used in the 19th century and earlier, the cupping glass is a glass vessel from which the air has been exhausted by heat or suction creating a vacuum, and then applied to the skin to draw blood to the surface for therapeutic or curative purposes.

As each is priced separately (see photos for pricing), please email us stating the number of items you wish to purchase so that we can customize your order form.

Offered for your consideration is a vintage, all-original, framed paper advertising sign for the cure of Gonorrhea, Gleet and Syphillis in men. Of interest is the matching 10.5" x 7.5" wood frame with the lightly stamped word "OKAY" on the top. This unusual piece of advertising dates to the early 1900's.

Condition: Mild, unobtrusive wear to the paper. The blue round label is affixed to the glass, not the actual paper. The frame retains 2 early holes used for hanging along with various surface dings and an early slice of wood missing from the right side of frame.

Historically, Pabst's Okay Specifics was cited by the 1906 FDA Act for various violations including failure to mention alcohol content, having no known curative ingredient, etc, resulting in frequent seizure and destruction of the product!

Offered is a singular, fabulous, highly decorative, 19th century apothecary / pharmacy show globe that was once part of a pair of globes that hung in a New York City pharmacy shoppe since the early 1930's! The globe was acquired from an individual who owned the pair since the early 1960s! ***PLEASE NOTE: The show globe WITHOUT the light interior hazing (see description below) has been sold as of 7/2015. Thus only one show globe remains available for purchase, the show globe with light hazing, priced at $1250.00.

This fabulous show globe sports a hand-blown, glass globe that is surrounded and adorned by very fancy, plated brass. The globe measures 22 inches high from the bottom finial to the top. Inclusive of the chain hanger, the globe measures 36 inches from base finial to the tip of original hanger. Condition is excellent with no missing parts, damage or repairs. The interior of the globe has a mild haze that I have chosen not to attempt to clean. The globe holds water quite safely should the next owner choose to fill it with colored liquid, as was the practice during the show globe "heyday". The metal components retain a beautiful patina.

The show globe is quite striking and will be a fabulous addition to any collection!

History: The 20th century provenance of the pair of show globes is documented per the previous owner as follows: The show globe pair resided from 1933 until 1965 at Liberty Drug, 126 Liberty Street, New York City, within very close vicinity of what was to become the location of the World Trade Center. The globes were then passed on in 1965 within the family and were moved to Liberty Drug, 195 Main Street, Chatham, NJ, where they were proudly displayed until 1986 when the most recent family member/owner retired and closed the drug store.
