Boite à dorer les pilules en bois tourné piédouche

Turned wooden pill gilding box with pedestal, apothecary item, 19th century

An antique apothecary's box once used for gilding pills. The box is made of turned wood on a pedestal, with a particularly attractive pointed lid. Pharmacists used this type of box to coat pills with a light layer of gold. This gave rise to the expression "gilding the pill".

In its original condition, with traces of age and wear, and a few traces of treated woodworm.

This is an authentic vintage object that could complete a cabinet of curiosities or stylize your interior decoration.
