Bank of Victorian Mahogany Pharmacy Drawers

Sold out
We currently have 0 in stock.

Sympathetically restored bank of 10 mahogany Victorian pharmacy drawers in a pine carcass with decorative brass handles, recently reclaimed from a Pharmacy refit. Dating from around 1880, originally it would have been built in with other similar draw units but its probably been stand alone for a while. Lightly restored to try and keep the condition as original as possible. All the woodwork has been stripped of old varnish, wax and over painting. The carcass has been re coloured and the whole unit waxed several times. Numerous repairs to most of the drawers, some of the front stretchers have been repaired (one is a replacement) and a few repairs on the runners. The bottom bead and some of the base were rotten this has been cut out and new beads added to the sides so it can be stand alone.

The top as shown in the main image is a fairly modern replacement which we have refinished (originally there would have been a mahogany top spanning all the drawer units), we have also refinished the original pine top which matches both the sides.  

It can be viewed by appointment in Bristol BS15.


In excellent original condition, quite a few holes where various sets of handles have been, a few holes in the original top where the new tops has been screwed on (only visible if you don't use the newer top). Some shrinkage to all of the drawer bases, some old stain on the bases and one is part missing its back. Originally there would have been mahogany beads on the front in between all the drawers but over the years as the drawers have been continually used all but one of these have come away. Its not really noticeable as they've been missing for a while so age has built up on the pine. All the drawers have dusted out but we'd recommend liners. Overall in excellent condition for a unit that's been in continual use for 120 years.
