Cast Bronze Apothecary Hook by Peter Van Schaack & Sons c1895 Item # G0251


This stunning cast bronze hook is NOS (New Old Stock), with the original lacquered finish still completely intact. Made by the Peter Van Schaack & Sons company of Chicago – one of the most prominent Mid-Western pharmacy wholesalers at the turn of the century – this hook would have been used to support one of the large glass orbs that hung in the windows of 19th and early 20th century druggist's shops. The orbs held colorful liquids that, although they did not have any medicinal purpose, served as a sort of advertisement for the pharmacy.

Today, this remarkable relic would make a stately plant hook, as it hinges to swing from side to side.

  • Historical Style: Aesthetic
  • Condition notes: NOS, with original lacquer finish still intact.
