A charming Victorian period doctor's traveling apothecary chest for medicine has a solid mahogany case, signed on a porcelain plaque "Bryce & Co., London," and dating from about 1875. Inside are tiny drawers and cubicles, another compartment is behind a sliding panel on the back.
The original finish is very well preserved, the case has hand cut dovetail joints at the corners. There are mars, stains and shrinkage separations from age on this antique from England.
Included are various glass bottles with fitted stoppers, some with reverse gold leaf labels and some stuck shut, a glass funnel, cylinder measure, spoonful measure, black glass jars, and other drug accessories. We advise against opening, consuming or even sniffing old medicine contents. Brass handles and mounts are also original.
Size when closed is 14" wide, 12" deep and 15" tall.
