Mid 19th Century Apothecary case with Contents and Key
Here is a rare example of Dr. Pulte’s Tinctures with most of the original contents. Several bottles are missing and 2-3 are broken. Still, the contents are largely intact and contain the original guide to the contents and the original key. Many of the small vials are filled with tiny pellets that were mixed with water to form a solution and applied topically to aid a variety of maladies. Still other vials have liquid that has partially dried.
Dr. Pulte was on of the first pioneers of Homeopathy and was widely credited with successfully fighting Cholera epidemics of the mid 19th century. He later established a Medical College and wrote several books. Pulte died in 1874.
