72 LINEAR feet of circa 1895 oak APOTHECARY store cabinetry. From a drug store in Nebraska - for the last 20-25 years has been used in an antique store in western Iowa. IMPRESSIVE find with so many linear feet of antique cabinetry.
Cabinets are 8' tall - with multiple sliding glass doors and numerous small apothecary drawers. The back of the cabinets have some pencil marks with the shop owner that bought & used this in circa 1896/1897. The individual I bought this set from gave me TWO of the ORIGINAL apothecary bottles with the shop owners name on them - they will be passed along to the new customer.
Approximately 8 - 10 of the porcelain drawer pulls are missing/and/or broken. SIX of the oak sliding glass doors are devoid of glass - THE REST of the NUMEROUS glass doors & panels appear to have original, early wavy glass. Original golden oak varnish - with lots of carved detail on the pilasters and crown molding. The base cabinets on one side of the unit have marble base boards. The unit was set up in the store facing each other - one wall, each had a 36' long unit.The cabinetry separates every 6' and is tied together by crown molding pieces. You can see them separated on my warehouse driveway before I stored them inside.
Ideally these could be reconfigured if 36' of wall space was not available. Rare to find an original intact wall unit set like this - THESE RARELY come on the market.Serious inquiries only - PLEASE.
