This website contains information and resources for those interested in Victorian medical, apothecary, and dental instruments and practices. You will also find information and artifacts relating to home medical care, quack medicine, and medical related art and advertising.
I have been collecting medical antiques for approximately 11 year. The collection has grown over the years, and I plan to add as many artifacts as possible to the website. To the best of my knowlege, all items represented on the site are circa the 1800s. Those items that I believe pre or post-date the 19th century will be clearly marked. Please feel free to contact me with questions, corrections, or if you have an interesting antique medical item for sale. I am always looking to expand the collection.
