Some times great things come in small packages. Offered is a graphically appealing 1920 patent medicine sporting a wonderful label. This unwrapped tonic bottle measures about 3.5 inches and like many patent medicines claims to treat more than one condition. If you need a blood and nerve or anemia remedy, this is it.

The label is complete, a bit faded in one area (red printed portion) but otherwise sports great lithography.

Back in the day, folks would often purchase eye exam kits by mail order. The kits came with directions and the individual would take the measurements and send the details back to the company for their prescription eyeglasses to be made.

This instrument dated 1928 has survived in very nice condition sporting a miniature paper optical chart. The wooden tool measures about 11.5 inches, complete with a good optical lens and functions like new.

Offered is a pair of fabulous, highly decorative, 19th century apothecary / pharmacy show globes that were recently acquired from an individual who has owned them since the early 1960s!

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

The pair are quite striking together and will be a fabulous addition to any collection!

History: The 20th century provenance of the globes are 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 close vicinity of the World Trade Center. They then were inherited in 1965 by the previous owners and were moved to Liberty Drug, 195 Main Street, Chatham, NJ, where they were proudly displayed until 1986 when the most recent owner retired and closed the drug store.

This extraordinarily unusual 7 piece collection of vintage RAW ROOTS & LEAVES date to the late 1800's - early 1900's!! They are from the A.D. Pierce Pharmacy which originated in Hartford, Connecticut, at 914 Main Street during the late 19th century. The store later relocated to 247 Sigourney Street in Hartford as A.D. Pierce and Son.

One package is marked PARKE DAVIS – “BUTTERNUT” - Bark of Root, measures 8” x 5”, and is in a one pound package. The other 6 wrapped packages feature hand-written content labels and are as follows: “Pd. Poplar Bark” 5” x 2” – “Pink Root” 4” x 4” x2” – “Beth Root” 3”x2” – Poke Root” 5” x4” x2” – a plastic bag of “Buchu Leaves” 8”x 6” x 2” and “Alkanit Root” in an 8” x 5” paper wrapper.

Aside from the Buchu Leaves, the packages are in “as found” but generally quite good condition considering their substantial age and very fragile nature!

Fabulous to display just as they are in their original packaging, lending an authentic, apothecary-shoppe-look to your personal collection!! Or fill your early glass apothecary bottles with vintage contents!!

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 boldly stamped word "OKAY" on the top. This unusual piece of advertising dates to the early 1900's.

Condition: Modest, unobtrusive wear to the frame with ancient water staining to the paper sign. The frame retains 2 early holes used for hanging along with various surface dings and an early slice of wood missing from the back 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!

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”.

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!

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.

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"!
