These were part of a ship's doctors medicine chest or shore based pharmacy. The numbers refer to a list of contents that the doctor or surgeon kept. The arrow is the British government ordnance sign. By coincidence I have a run of 5 embossed 121/2 that will be for sale.







Wanted --- any unusual items from Kent & the South East, including advertising, early stoneware, & bottles (of course!).  Also rare patent poisons, early pontilled medicines, & rare burst lip/teakettle inks.
