Three Things; Treasury – Antique Pharmacy

Antique Pharmacy Equipment

Today we’d like to share some vintage Pharmacy paraphernalia with a personal and geographical link.

Vintage pharmacy scales

These pharmaceutical scales were used by Kris’ Mum’s great uncle James who used to live in Heswall on the Wirral.

Vintage shop display cabinet

This is a custom display cabinet from his pharmacy in the days when shops had bespoke shop fittings. A fine cabinet that was delivered this week by Kris’ parents from his Nanny’s house.

Vintage pharmacy certificate

This is the Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain’s Certificate for James Broad, he was first registered in 1920 and this certificate is dated 1954.

Vintage pharmacy dispensing envelopes and tools

The drawer of the scales as well as the expected weights and measures also contained some pharmaceutical equipment and these wonderful letterpress envelopes for dispensing.

How lucky to receive these vintage treasures and how lovely that we know who they belonged to and to return them to a few short miles from their original home.
