Mahogany, glass, brass alloys, ivory (drawer knobs)
On loan from Winterthur, gift of Mrs. George P. Bissell, Jr.
Some of the glass vials have chipped rims and/or stoppers. A few are possible replacements.
The medicine cabinet was given to Winterthur for use in the Wilson-Warner House.
The cabinet has a recessed carrying handle at the top. Two locking and deep-hinged doors in front have fitted compartments inside for two rows of three stoppered vials. The doors open to two drawers below-fitted compartments for four large vials. A sliding panel in the rear of the cabinet opens to another fitted space for four additional stoppered vials. The drawers are fitted and contain a glass mortar and pestle, a balance scale and weights (marked in drams), and other equipment.
