Apothecary Cabinets

Roundup

In small spaces we often look for attractive ways in which to maximize the storage capabilities of our humble homes and an antique apothecary cabinet is a beautiful solution that offers many small drawers for all your odds and ends.

Originally used by apothecaries, or old-timey pharmacists who performed surgeries and offered medical advice, these robust chests of drawers were home to all the ingredients used in the various tonics and salves prepared during that time.
