Three Things; Treasury – Antique Pharmacy
Today we’d like to share some vintage Pharmacy paraphernalia with a personal and geographical link.
These pharmaceutical scales were used by Kris’ Mum’s great uncle James who used to live in Heswall on the Wirral.
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.
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.
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.
