Pharmacy Apothecary Cachet Pill Powder Mold Machine
SOLD

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.
