Please refer to our stock # ConBliss when inquiring.

Offered is a highly unusual, Civil War era, doctor's medicine case packed with over 100 pill vials. The leather case is in "as found" condition and could use a light cleaning. There are a total of 6 sections that secure the many vials. Four of the sections contain narrow corked vials, and the 2 other sections contain larger screw top and corked vials. Many of the medicines are labeled and most contain their contents.

The case latches together and has a worn handle and exterior center supports. The hinged portions of the interior compartments are partially intact and functional and are in generally good condition considering its age.

The case measures 15"L x 6"W x 6"H and is a wonderful example of early medical doctor's equipment. Rarely found in this very large sized case!
