The front edge of the open Apothecary box has a small brass pin that keeps the drawer secure when the box is closed. Inside the drawer is a glass mortar & pestle, measuring beaker, two small vials with cork stoppers, a set of weighing scales with brass weights, a spoon and a palette knife (labelled: S. Mawson & Thompson Aldersgate St.)
