19thC Konseal Pharmacy Capsule Filling Machine
$245.00

Offered is a very scarce, smaller version of the Konseal Capsule Filling Machine from the late 19th century.

The nickel plated, heavy metal device is neatly packed into a hardwood case sporting joined grooved construction. Included are 3 size funnels and 2 matching tampers, a felt moistening rolling pin - 4 envelopes each containing direction slips for use. Also contains 2 booklets - one for physicians touting the history and benefits of using the Konseal rice flour capsules and another larger booklet primarily containing directions for use. The set is complete with a wooden top tray for housing the booklets, funnels, rolling pin and supplies.

The wooden case and metal Konseal machine are in very good condition, commensurate with age and use. The top tray is in good condition as well though it sports an ancient hole as seen in the photos.

Please note the original handsome brass label tacked to the top of box. The wooden case measures 9.5"L x 6.5"W x 3.5"H.

Wafers when sealed, were designed to house bitter flavored powdered medicines thus avoiding distasteful side effects.
