Product Description

A stunning and rare display cabinet…

Dating to the earlier part of the 20th century, circa 1930s, this is an original counter top display cabinet produced for chemists and opticians. Made by Kemps Pharmacy Ltd, of Scotland, the cabinet is complete with its makers mark in the form of a Black logo on reverse glass. The cabinet would have been used to store and showcase some of the companies products. The cabinet is in beautiful condition, structurally strong with its original glass shelf and its removable metal components. The cabinet has an ‘Art Deco’ feel about it with its terrific design and the chrome and metal finish is beautiful

Its a nice size and for us would look perfect on a counter in a retail environment, or maybe in a foodery. As the cabinet is accessed via the back, one could showcase cakes or snacks in a coffee shop, or even use it to display watches and jewelry (for example). Lastly, the thick glass is in good shape with the ‘Green tinge’ to the side. Naturally there are a few surface scuffs and abrasions to the glass and to the cabinet, but it all adds to the authenticity of the cabinet…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. The cabinet although structurally great has some surface scars and scratches, with some denting and chipping to the metal frame, and some tatty areas across the cabinet. It doesn’t however impact the overall look and feel, we just love the charming size and look. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

Please note : The apothecary bottles are not included within this listing…
