Apothecary's Cabinet, Light Elm
With a cabinet section at the bottom and 12 drawers above, our light elm apothecary cabinet is a slightly more modern interpretation of the classic medicine chest. Chinese herbalists have used multi drawer chests with multiple for centuries to hold the herbs and remedies of their profession. In some cases these would house dozens of drawers, each one split into three or four sections and labelled to show the contents. The drawers on our model are slightly larger than on most original chests, each being ideally sized to hold up to 25 CDs. They are also deep enough to hold DVDs if placed with the spine facing upwards. The cabinet also works well in a bedroom for holding socks, tights or underwear. Made from solid reclaimed elm, the drawers are dovetailed and fitted with brass handles.
