This instrument is called a BURTONS VITALOMETER, and was used to measure the health of the tooth pulp.
The case measures 12" tall x 8.5" across x 4.25" deep and is in very good condition. This attractive cabinet sports a 6", circular, front window and comes with all the parts and electrical components as seen in the photos. I have not verified whether this tool functions, but was told that all of the dental instruments were still in use up until the time of the previous owner's retirement.
A unique, visually interesting, piece to add to one's dental collection!
Measuring 60 inches wide by 40 inches high, this highly colorful chart is just chock-full of information! Metal hanging grommets placed across the top facilitated display back in the 1950's. This incredibly interesting, double-sided chart highlights the science and history of sight as well as its medical assessment and its effects on one's ability to function productively in society.
The front side of the chart is entitled, "Vision: Master Key to Man's Progress" and highlights the biology and history of sight with a side discussion of optical illusions. The back side is entitled, "Science: Multiplies Eye Power" and discusses the science of vision and its correction featuring the Snellen Vision Chart, an Astigmatism chart and a Color Discrimination chart.
Condition is quite good with excellent color and clarity of print. Foxing is present on the front side side of the chart where the Optical Illusion information is printed. A very small edge tear is evident on the bottom of the chart and is most readily seen in photos when viewing the bottom back side of the chart where the description of Color Discrimination is found. (please see photos)
A fabulous, mid-20th century retrospective on vision as well as 1950's optometry and opthamology! Would be fabulous framed between two pieces of plexi-glass to facilitate display on either side!
This tin displays absolutely wonderfully and features a fabulously detailed ART NOUVEAU styled blue and cream colored lithograph on the cover! The side labels are quite interesting as well as they detail the 16 different face colors produced by M. Stein which include such unique color names as "Indian", "Moving Picture", Sallow Old Age", Chinese", and "Juvenile Flesh" to name a few!
The only tin remaining is marked as color 12 (olive). Please see photos which well represent condition. The tin has superficial scratches and minimal faint rust commensurate with an early tin. No rust on the bottom as the photo might indicate. The tin measures 4.25 inches in diameter and is nearly 2 inches in height.
The tin you are viewing is noted in the 5th photo. Looks better in person.
The 5 tins are all in nice condition with unobtrusive minor surface scratches with one having a minor rust stain to the lower edge from storage.
The tins measure just over 1.5 “ in diameter.
Perfect for your shop or collection!
Quite visually appealing, the sign is in very nice condition with minor paint loss with flaking on the left side. There is some lightening on the finish as well but it is not obtrusive. The photos actually enhance this effect which is much less obvious when viewed "in person". This paint issue on the left side is best appreciated in the last photo.

Retaining its vivid coloration, this conversation piece is in very good condition with tiny, unobtrusive paint flecks and chipping to the chalkware as noted in photos. The chipping is evident primarily at the base. A four inch, diagonal hairline is present on the center top near the "H" in the word "Headquarters"; it does not impact the structural integrity of the piece and is actually barely visible on the front side of the piece.
This seldom found piece of medical and/or drug store advertising could serve as a most colorful focal point of a collection.
Due to the weight of this unique piece, it is not subject to our free shipping offer.
The instrument is made of what appears to be aluminum or stainless steel and is in in excellent condition. The syringe measures about 14 inches long x 3.5 inches wide. The box is complete and a bit tattered -- primarily at the seams. It sports 2 detailed labels as pictured. An unusual and rarely found dental tool of the trade.
Measuring about 3 inches square, this circa 1920s - 1930s vintage tin is an unusual find.
The condition of the tin is good, commensurate with its age. Unobtrusive wear and paint loss do not detract from this hard to find tin .
Great for your pharmacy collection!
Perfect for your laboratory, medical or weird science collection!
The tool works fine and the blade opens and closes easily and is 9.5 inches long.
This cleverly named product came in a diminutive tube measuring 3.5 inches long with its carton a mere 4 inches long. Supposedly, by following directions and using "at the right time", this ointment would measure up to its full potential.
Dates to the 1950's - 1960's era and is in very good condition.
This antiquated medicine with inert contents is meant for display ONLY and NOT meant for use.
A GREAT conversation piece!
The mirror front has a faded salmon colored border surrounding an image of a person's face with protruding tongue, about to swallow a "NR" (Nature's Remedy)tablet.
Imprinted around the circumference of the mirror is the following, "Take One Tonight - You'll feel Better In The Morning."
"Better Than Pills For Liver Ills - Get a 25 Cent Box"
Original mirrored backing is in very fine condition with just a few very minute, superficial scratches. Some fading of color around the very edge of the mirror as seen in photos.
Manufacturer name stamped on bottom edge: "Parisian Novelty Company, Chicago".
An interesting little advertising piece!
This wonderful, 1940-1950s vintage hand made and painted mortar and pestle display once adorned the interior of a Connecticut pharmacy. The display is decorated in red with painted bronze details for added flair.
Measures about 7 high” x 4.5” wide and is in very nice condition! Some unobtrusive surface paint loss and scuffing including a few tiny nail holes are apparent but do not distract from their visual appeal!
