A wonderful antique Folk Art Apothecary Mortar Pedestal Wall Rack. The rack has a hole in the center in which the Mortar rests and a single drawer for a pedestal. It is hand carved from old wood crates and has an excellent old surface, there is advertising carved onto one of the boards from when it was used for shipping/advertising. The top finial is in the figural form of the Sun. The Apothecary Cupboard is most likely European, Spanish, the Gentleman I acquired it from thought it was Portuguese. It is large at 19" x 10" x 4 1/2" deep. The Apothecary Cupboard is in very good overall condition for it's age and use. The only thing to note are the 2 tips pieces on the left side have repairs. It came with a bronze Mortar but no Pedestal, I think the Cupboard itself is circa late 1800s, early 1900 and the Mortar is earlier. The Apothecary Cupboard would make an excellent addition to a Rustic, Folk Art or Primitive decor.
