A very large bank of 45 graduated apothecary drawers

A spectacular bank of 45 apothecary drawers in the richest mahogany with wonderful glass handles.

These long and slim, salvaged drawers are beautifully crafted, with 5 rows of graduated drawers (11 on the bottom, then 10, then 9, then 8, then 7). These therefore not only look sublime, but they also have masses of great storage.

The drawers have false ‘marbled’ wooden bases, which lift out. Each is dovetailed. Most bear their original stickers for Shaw’s of Glogar, and/or pencil written notes to the side of the drawer detailing their contents.

These are all original, and utterly beautiful.

Just a gorgeous piece that will hold its value over years of service.
