About this item

If you're super tidy and love drawers you'll love this Cream Lacquered Apothecary's Chest which still has its original finish, including the drawer labels and drawer handles. The thirty small drawers and three larger drawers at the bottom are each split into sections with wooden dividers and each labelled on the front to indicate the various remedies that would have been held inside.

This beautiful medicine chest originates from Shanxi province, central China, circa 1850 and was used to house and store herbs and various remedies used in Chinese medicine.

This special piece oozes character and charm with its worn and crackled cream lacquer finish with red written characters on each drawer front. This is a particularly rare piece of furniture and coupled with its rich history it would make a great addition to a living room or bedroom.
