Also to maintain its beauty for at least another 100 years . A true rare piece , to be still in one length as throughout the generations this exceptional well crafted draws from old apothecary shops would normally be cut up , a true surviver !

Pine frame , planked back with mahogany draw fronts .

There are 112 draws ( 98 with Victorian cut glass pull knobs & 14 with turned mahogany handles )

All still with slightly faded original faded chemical names , that were all hand sign written .

Four dove tail joints & hand drilled holes for the glass turn pull handles .

As well as the 112 draws, there are now 7 additional large clean usable compartments at the bottom, with pull down draws .

We have had these boxed inside , as normally these compartments would just be open backed sitting on the floor. this makes them more usful in modern days .


All original frame with no adaptations in length. (One complete unit . ) RARE.

These are a Fantastic craftsmanship of the Victorian era ,the stories these beautiful charismatic draws could tell .

The beauty of these , is that the colour and depth of the wood changes throughout the day . In the evenings they seem to come alive !!
