Antique Sullivan's Apothecary Measure in Turned Wood Travel Case

Regular price $30.00

A lovely thing, and a handy one to have on hand and for travel to measure a few teaspoons or tablespoons of a dose--or a shot! The measuring glass reads "JNo Sullivan / Apothecary / Boston / Tremont St Cor. [Corner of], Beacon." I have not turned up a match of this, or a record of Sullivan Apothecary on Tremont Street, but it seems there were quite a lot of apothecaries and pharmacies that came and went on Tremont street! Late 19th c. I believe.

3 1/4 t x 2 1/16 d and in very good condition. One minor split to the lip of the lid due to dryness.
