Offered in fine, as new condition after decades of storage, we have a very limited number of Dr. CHILTON’s FEVER and AGUE CURE Manufactured by COMSTOCK & BROTHER, New York labeled pill boxes of turned birch wood, each containing a complement of pills. Founded in New York in 1853 the Comstock & Brother apothecary firm was a colorful outfit to say the least, spending as much time in court fighting off charges that they had invented doctors such as Dr. Chilton out of thin air simply to promote their cures. In one instance court records show they not only created an cure creator but invented a history to include family members and life among the Indians where the secrets of the cure were learned. By 1863 the brothers Comstock had parted ways and their apothecary business ceased to exist. More than anyone needs to know we suppose but an interesting bit of Americana. Priced here individually for the collector who would enjoy one, this offering will go well in any period apothecary, early quack medicine or Civil War era personal grouping. please note: ALL ITEMS ARE CURRENT & AVAILABLE UNLESS MARKED SOLD!! Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !!
