Offered for your consideration is a vintage, all-original, framed paper advertising sign for the cure of Gonorrhea, Gleet and Syphilis in men. Of interest is the matching 10.5" x 7.5" wood frame with the lightly stamped word "OKAY" on the top. This unusual piece of advertising dates to the early 1900's.

Condition: Mild, unobtrusive wear to the paper. The blue round label is affixed to the glass, not the actual paper. The frame retains 2 early holes used for hanging along with various surface dings and an early slice of wood missing from the right side of frame.

Historically, Pabst's Okay Specifics was cited by the 1906 FDA Act for various violations including failure to mention alcohol content, having no known curative ingredient, etc, resulting in frequent seizure and destruction of the product!

Measuring 4 inches long by 4.50 inches high by 3 inches deep, this fabulous, circa 1830's, English, porcelain, quill holder features a young, aristocratic lady surrounded by mounds of flowers and playing a lute.

Possibly Staffordshire, the quill holder features polychrome coloration with gold embellishment. Condition is wonderful with no chips, breaks, repairs, or repaints. Some discoloration seen under the base in the area where the quill hole is located. This discoloration may well be due to ink drips from quill or pen landing on the porcelain over many, many years.

A delightful piece!

This delightfully fancy, 19th Century, cast iron, physician's office sign marked "DR. JOHN LAGAN", once hung on a small building in turn-of-the-century San Francisco, California! It actually survived the famous earthquake of 1906!!

The sign features a delightful and mellow patina with an old painted surface retaining traces of old blue coloring beneath the exterior battleship gray tones. Scattered areas of unobtrusive surface rust add to the wonderful appeal of this vintage sign.

Offered is a very scarce, 19th century, strength measuring medical device known as a dynamometer that was manufactured by the G. Tiemann Company, New York, the most renown and respected surgical device manufacturers of the 19th century. Sold in the US by a gymnasium apparatus company out of St. Louis, the Fred Medart Company, the device was designed to assess the strength of the chest, back and legs up to a pull capacity of 1400 lbs.

This fabulous early tool of the medical trade sports a visually-interesting, graphic, brass face with a scale delineating increments from 0 to 1400 pounds. There are 2 dials - one that notes the actual pressure achieved, and the second stationary dial that serves as the reference.

This instrument enjoys wonderful, rich patina on both the metal and wooden sections. It measures 13 inches at the widest point and 10 inches at the wooden handles.

A fabulous device which has great visual appeal and displays wonderfully! Sure to spark some interesting conversation at your next gathering!

This text is one in a series of books published in the 1880's by the WILLIAM WOOD & COMPANY, 55 & 58 Lafayette Place, NEW YORK. 355 pages. 106 black & white wood engravings.

**Frames are PRICED separately. The large frame: $175.00. The small frame: $65.00**.

Offered are two utterly fabulous, vintage, Victorian-era, brass-plated photo frames, each with original shelf stands on back.

De-accessioned from our personal stock as we sadly no longer have the place to display them-- and our Wedding photo was displayed in the larger frame--, the frames are in all-original condition, complete with original shelf stands attached on the rear side as well as original movable pins that secure the photos in the frames.

In the larger frame, the brass plating is in very fine condition with very minor, minuscule scratches and pitting commensurate with its 125+ years of age. Please note that in my effort to take crisp closeup shots, the silvering of the brass on the front of the frame in the larger photo appears to be quite pronounced, while in reality, it is quite subtle, and virtually un-noticable. Please see cover photo #1 for truest representation of overall appearance.

The larger frame comes complete with glass and measures 17" high x 13"; the inside measures are 9.5" x 7.5", readily accommodating an 8"x 10" photo with slight trimming. This larger size is actually quite uncommon compared to the many, many smaller-sized brass frames that were produced in the Victorian era. The larger frame is truly quite stunning and commanding.

The smaller frame has a similar amount of very teeny scratches and minor pitting, with more some wear to the brass plate where the color appears more coppery. Again, close-up photos make the wear appear much more prominent on the front than it actually is, so please view photo #1 for truest representation of coloring. This fame measures 12" x 9" and easily accommodates today's 4 x 6 photographs. This frame has not retained its glass, but just like the photo size, the frame will readily accept the glass from any modern, standard 4x6 frame.

Not just an ordinary pharmacy bottle, but one that is quite special for what is printed on the label! Brometone was marketed as a hypnotic, sedative analgesic that produced sleepiness but also "nausea and other alimentary disturbances".

While originally photographed with contents, this bottle is empty. Measures about 5 inches tall and is in nice condition with no damage to the bottle. Dates to the 1910 era.

An exceedingly RARE and all-original, commanding group photograph of 1880's NURSES with a bit of the mysterious- might be depicting recent graduates of a nursing program with male and female head instructors or may be a photograph of hospital staff nurses with head nurse and administrator/physician.

Framed in original, period frame with wood backing (20 x 15.5 inches); photo dimensions- 14.5 x 19.5 inches. Wonderful condition!
