Apothecary Store For Sale on 1stDibs

With a vast inventory of beautiful furniture at 1stDibs, we’ve got just the apothecary store you’re looking for. Each apothecary store for sale was constructed with extraordinary care, often using wood, oak and softwood. Your living room may not be complete without an apothecary store — find older editions for sale from the 19th Century and newer versions made as recently as the 20th Century. When you’re browsing for the right apothecary store, those designed in Industrial, Folk Art and Victorian styles are of considerable interest. Many designers have produced at least one well-made apothecary store over the years, but those crafted by Clark & Biddle are often thought to be among the most beautiful.

How Much is a Apothecary Store?

Prices for an apothecary store can differ depending upon size, time period and other attributes — at 1stDibs, they begin at $975 and can go as high as $24,500, while the average can fetch as much as $4,200.

Finding the Right Apothecary Cabinets for You

If you’ve been searching for a unique solution for storage or displaying your serveware or decorative objects, might we prescribe an antique or vintage apothecary cabinet?

With the advent of the modern-day pharmacy, you can often go a long time without running into an apothecary . . . or even seeing the word. Popular in the 15th and 16th centuries, apothecary shops are the predecessors of today’s typical drug stores. An apothecary, in the person sense, was a medical professional, dispensing medicines and remedies for common ailments, but also preparing and mixing said medicines in-house. Too often these shops were quite small and, like most of us constantly seeking savvy storage solutions, apothecaries needed a cabinet to store supplies and medicinal ingredients.

Apothecary cabinets are case pieces similar in size to early dressers or commodes but with uniquely sized shelving and (often numerous) drawers. Indeed, these old-world furnishings offer seemingly endless ways to sort and display or just help tidy up a room while maintaining its charm.

Decorating with a vintage metal apothecary cabinet, or one made of solid wood, is a snap. Pay tribute to the piece’s original purpose by displaying your very own collection of apothecary jars and bottles or decorative art glass. Elsewhere, introduce the cabinet to high-traffic areas such as your living room — two smaller Victorian-era apothecary cabinets could work as side tables — or your entryway much in the way you would a console table. These functional furnishings can work as storage in your home office or as nightstands in the bedroom, and in any interior they can be positioned against the wall to keep your space orderly and clutter-free.

Browse a collection of antique and vintage apothecary cabinets on 1stDibs today.
