This is a rare and great find from an estate sale!

Featured is an antique wooden medicine chest that was used in a doctor's office to store and dispense opthalmic ointments from the Swan-Myers Company of Indianapolis. It consists of six partitioned shelves on the top, with three drawers on the bottom portion.

The overall measurements of the cabinet are 9 1/2 inches tall, 7 1/2 inches wide, and 4 inches deep. The six top partitions are 3 1/8" by 1 5/8" each. The three drawers on the bottom are 6 1/4" by 3 1/4". The overall condition of the piece is very good, with minimal signs of wear from age.

The bottom of each of the three drawers is lined with a piece of paper that lists the different opthalmic ointments the case contained when used in the doctor's office. Two of the papers are quite yellowed from age and possibly oils from the ointments and one piece is much whiter and cleaner.

This is a very nice piece that could be used in so many different ways. A great jewelry box, sweet desktop organizer, add sawtooth hangers and hang on a wall for display items, and so much more!!

Don't care for the dark wood antique look? This would look sweet painted a new funky color to match your decor too!
