About this item

This wonderful medicine chest comes from Shanxi province, central China, circa 1820 and is one of the best examples that we have come across.

It still has its original finish, hardware and old labels that are still intact on each of the fronts of the twenty-one drawers, detailing which herbs and remedies were once held in each section. Chinese characters can also be found on the top and sides of the frame.

The black lacquer has worn over the years adding an element of charm to a superb piece of furniture that has been around for 200 years.

Apothecary chests of this type are rare to come across and this really will make a delightful statement piece in a modern home .
