This attractive bank of apothecary drawers date from the mid-Victorian period. They have had some alteration over the years. All the drawers retain period glass drug plaques. Some retain parts of their original lining. There are twenty-six drawers in total, three rows of six shelves over two rows of four drawers. They are supported on an inverted plinth base. The top and sides of the chests are more modern additions.
Slade's Antiques has clarified that the Victorian Mahogany Apothecary Cabinet Drawers with Glass Plaques (LA82675) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being Mid 19th Century
Overall this attractive bank of drawers are in usuable condition, but would benefit from some sympathetic restoration. They have had some alteration over the years and the top and sides of the chest are modern additions that are not of good quality. The top of the chest is loose to one end and there is an area of wood loss and damage to the trim at one side. There is some scuffing, scratching, knocking and wear to the woodwork as might be expected and the piece is overall a little faded. There is some water damage to the top of the chest and to one drawer front. There are some signs of repair in places and some of the drawer runners have had attention. Some of the drawer handles are replacements. The glass plaques have some wear and there is some corrosion to the backings. There are some stickers - new and old - and some writing in places to the tops and frames of the drawers.
