15-Drawers to Organize
Asian Antique Herb Cabinet

SOLD - Please view our available antique Chinese furniture or browse the categories in the   red   and   green   sections to the left.

Functional organization, beautiful organization-that's what this antique Chinese apothecary cabinet or herb chest offers. Fifteen drawers each with three fixed dividers = 45 spaces. Perfect fit for socks, DVDs, office supplies and many other items. The front and top of the cabinet are painted black, the sides are stained brown. Each drawer has Chinese characters painted in beige, perhaps labels painted by the original owner.

Some of the characters have been translated for us as medicinal ingredients (Peppermint, Honeysuckle, Ginseng, Melons, Armadillo) for aliments or conditions (Child Bearing, Skin, Digestion, Lungs, Hot Drink and Hangovers.)

The brass pulls are a mixture of old and new and are of similar designs. Simple leg extenders.

Apothecary cabinets were used by apothecaries (similar to pharmacist, as we know them today) to store items they thought to be medicinal.
