Blackened Apothecary Cabinet
$300.00 - $320.00
Please Note: The Apothecary Cabinet in Blackened Maple is currently out of stock at our shop. We’re making more, but they may take 1–2 weeks to ship.
Historically used to house medications, elixirs, herbs and the like in the 1800s, apothecary cabinets were commonly used in the absence of drug stores. Some cabinets even had nailed or secret compartments to store poisons and hard-to-find spices.
Whether you fill it with drugstore remedies or home-created potions, our apothecary cabinet is built as a storage display for one’s washroom needs.
The cabinet is simple and versatile and need not be limited to bathroom use. Works wonderfully in the kitchen for spices and potions, as well as a work shoppe or any where storage is needed!
We first set eyes on the result of the gorgeous Japanese wood-blackening technique Shou sugi ban at a historic village in America (that I cannot, no matter how much I dig back, recall). The process involves charring the wood, toughening and preserving the exterior. The blackening, is what initially caught my eye, the effectiveness of the process against wind, water &c, only makes it better. Natural finish is also available.
