$1100Antique Chinese Apothecary Cabinet
Beautiful Chinese apothecary cabinet, from an herbal pharmacist in the China province having original calligraphy to the drawer fronts and original brass handles.
This antique apothecary cabinet was recently restored to its former beauty. Much of the labeling on the drawers was able to be preserved. The colors of the cabinet are beautifully aged walnut brown.
Each drawer has a brass pull and some of them also have black metal studs.
Traditionally, a local doctor or medicine shop would store and sort herbs, potions, or other medicinal remedies in these chests.
Today, they can used to store cooking spices, art supplies(which I used for it) and any items you want to put, socks and underwear, craft supplies, and great as an modern cabinet. Or you can just appreciate it for its history, cultural reference and beauty.
