This magnificent late 19th century medicine chest was originally used by a Chinese pharmacy to organize and store herbal medicines. It is an outstanding piece of mortise and tenon construction with 21 drawers, each labeled with the name of the herb on the surface. All four corners are decorated with brass. Unlike many medicine chests decorated with lacquer and paper drawer labels, this cabinet is undecorated to show off the beautiful grain and warm colors of the wood construction.
Measures: 43.5" W x 8.5" D x 18.5" H.
Very good original vintage condition.
