7 Parke Davis Drugstore Apothecary  RAW ROOTS Packages
$105.00

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!!
