About Apothecary Chests

Their long and romantic history, stylish and elegant designs, and practical storage uses make apothecary chests treasures to cherish. These chests date back to the early 19th century. They feature low rectangular designs much like modern trunks and storage chests. Apothecary chests, however, contain up to 60 small separate drawers. These drawers traditionally fit neatly into chests spanning 10 boxes across and standing six rows high. Today, you can place these chests in your bathrooms for storing medicines, herbs, and supplements, like early German physicians or place them in the kitchen to store spices and herbs, remembering the days of the Silk Trade. In bedrooms and home offices, keep jewelry, pens, papers, and other small objects well organized in labeled drawers instead. Whatever your ideal uses, find these chests on eBay where there is a large inventory. You may discover antique apothecary chests featuring wood finishes in oak, mahogany, and more. Some contain beautiful polishes, adding a noble glossy finish. Find them in traditional trunk shapes and in rare versions, like ovals and squares.
