Date Description: Small Treen Boxwood Bottle Holder V193
Country of Origin: England
Dealer Reference: V193


Often found in Chemists and Doctors travelling medicine chests, these wooden bottle shaped containers were excellent at protecting their contents. Turned from boxwood, they were crafted with amazingly accurate screw on lids, that even today are sharp, effortlessly opening and closing. This small example has an incised stamp on the lid: SAVORY & MOORE LONDON, for the well known chemists that operated throughout the 19th century. The condition is very good, with only a small surface disturbance at a point in the wood grain. Circa 1860
