The condition is near excellent with no damage, cracks or dings with only minor gold gilt loss to the pestle.
An outstanding display that will compliment any pharmacy collection.
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.
Measuring about 7" x 4", this "Rolex" brand-labeled device and its three attachments are in very nice condition. The booklet has a copyright date of 1934 and is packed with photos and suggested uses for the massager including treatment of headaches and renewing vigor!
The case measures about 8" x 10" and sports a fabulous interior label. The cord is a bit dry so I opted to not plug it in. (I would expect that this device is functional as all the other electric medical devices from this collection were in working condition. Without plugging it in, I cannot guarantee if it works, so please purchase with this in mind.)
Working or not, this interesting, Quack Medical device is a unique "find" and is ready for your collection.
This popular and very recognizable, pharmacy collectible is constructed of a cobalt blue glass base with an aluminum stand that sports an old bottle of Bromo Seltzer retaining a label dating to 1987. The stand measures just over 15 inches high including the bottle.
The condition is commensurate with a used pharmacy device. The base shows wear with various scratches, and the metal is tarnished. The dispenser mechanism rotates and functions properly. The piece was in storage for many years and retains its original, "as-found" patina. A very nice find!
The Bromo Seltzer product takes its name from a component of the original formula, sodium bromide. Bromides are a class of tranquilizers that were withdrawn from the U.S. market in 1975 due to their toxicity. Their sedative effect probably accounted for Bromo-Seltzer's vast popularity back in the day as THE go-to remedy for hangovers!
The sign measures 14 inches wide x 10 inches high, and is quite bright and visually appealing.
This painted metal sign remains in fine condition with minor surface scratching, tiny areas of paint loss and tiny areas of superficial rusting, all as noted in photos.
The historically-fascinating sheath label is in exquisite condition with minor edge wear noted to the sheath. The strap shows evidence of use and also remains in fine condition.
The 9.35 inch long strap was advertised for use in sharpening not only shaving razors, but also pen knives and surgical instruments!
A rare piece of early Barber Shop Memorabilia!
For perspective as to size, the largest nostrum is CHAMBERLAIN'S TABLETS measuring 2.5"L x 1.5"W. A wonderful grouping, ready for your collection!
This cute size display measures 4.5" x 3.75" closed and is in very nice condition. The top lifts up to facilitate advertisement of the product and would have been placed on the counter top of a pharmacy in this fashion. A neat find!
The box is in very nice condition with some wear from age and storage. Measures 2.5" high x 2.2" wide x 1.5" deep and contains 12 individually boxed vials all in very nice condition.
The large brass sign measures 5" x 14", exhibits some tarnishing, and was most likely placed on the doctor's office building exterior.
The diminutive brass sign, measures 6.5" x 3.5" and was most likely attached to an interior door.
Both signs are in very nice condition and are easily displayed either on a shelf or on the wall!
The pair is offered at $100.00 or either one of the signs may be purchased individually at $60.00 each.
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.
Cleverly conceived and constructed, this display combines a very, visually-pleasing, accessible medicine display that promoted spur-of-the-moment purchases at the drug store cash register, along with a tape dispenser for use by the pharmacist and his employees! Quite clever--- as it guaranteed that the display would remain in use and visible in the pharmacy as the tape dispenser provided a nice convenience for drug store employees!
In very nice condition with expected scratches, paint rubs, and non-problematic, superficial surface rusting here and there (please see photos) expected of a 75+ year old functional display.
The display retains one of its twelve, original, glass Alka-Seltzer medicine bottles (empty of contents) as well as an older, used roll of tape in the dispenser!
A very unique advertising drug store display sure to start an interesting conversation at your next dinner party!
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!
Constructed of paper that is reinforced with fabric, this chart is not to be missed. Measuring just over 34 inches long x 10 inches wide, it remains in good overall condition. There are various imperfections such as minor stains and wrinkles (see photos) which do not at all detract from the great visual appeal of the chart. A few 1/2 inch, unobtrusive, edge tears are noted.
Marked 'American Optical Company - No. 1936' on the bottom and 'Printed in USA' on the side. Can be easily framed and mounted for display.
The condition is very good for each bottle except for some staining on one of the bottles. Complete labels and undamaged bottles make these a choice trio of poisons.
The kit includes 5 Aseptic Gauze Packets, Band-Aid Box (tin), Box Absorbent Cotton, Adhesive Plaster (tin), Synol Soap, Johncolia Burn Emollient (some product leakage), tube J&J Analgesic (missing box), a pair if scissors, tweezers and a small package of cotton swabs. The contents appear unused to slightly used and fit perfectly into the kit. There are 2 mounting hooks on back ready for hanging in your collection.
Measures 9.25"H x 7.25"W x 2"D and sports an interior label / quick reference information sheet.
A striking First Aid collectible!
This diminutive size display measures 6.25" x 3.75" x 2" closed and is in very nice condition except for some unobtrusive ink scribbling appearing mostly on the top. The cover lifts up to facilitate the advertising of this product and would have been placed on the counter top of a pharmacy in this fashion. A neat find!
