Beautiful, rare, blue colored apothecary cabinet is one of a kind and very special. 68 drawers are adorned with original iron and coin hardware. 64 of them have three internal dividers while 4 large drawers have 2 or 4 dividers. They offer great storage and organization. Stunning blue turquoise crackling paint enhances the charm of this magnificent piece. The most unusual and interesting feature of this piece is that the sides and back are completely covered in iron sheets. Such an extraordinary effort was made in order to prevent pest and termites from invading the cabinet, which indicated the precious medicinal herbs that were stored in it. Markings of the herb's names, written in ink calligraphy, are still visible on many of its drawers. This is a very heavy, extremely substantial piece, that makes a fantastic focal point by giving your interior a sophisticated, exotic, yet fresh look. Solid wood. Tenons and mortises.
