Wrought iron and copper, wood, pottery, and glass, late 19th century and early 20th century, The Netherlands

Beautiful collection of old attributes, which were used by pharmacists to make pills and ointments.
The collection consists of:
A 19th century plank for making pills.
Old 19th century earthenware ointment jars.
19th century copper mortar and pestle.
19th century copper funnel.
11 brown glass apothecary jars in various sizes, some still with old label.
Special old 17 piece cork drilling set with 16 copper drills, from the end of the 19th or early 20th century. These drills were available in different sets, from 3 up to 18 pieces. Also see the image in the ancient medical catalogue.
The wrought iron handles are numbered. Besides the numbering, some are also marked with hallmarks shaped like a crown of the blacksmith. This set is in good but used condition
Set was used to make and drill corks in the right size for the different sizes bottles and jars that were used.
I do not know what the wooden block and wooden pestle were used for.

The items will be packaged with care and shipped by registered mail.

    Geachte koper,

    Het spijt mij dat u de indruk hebt dat ik het pakket veel te laat op de bus heb gedaan.
    Alleen ben ik van mening dat deze indruk niet klopt.
    U hebt woensdagavond 25-4 na de veiling het item betaald. Ik heb het item zaterdag
    28-4 op de post gedaan.
    Catawiki geeft altijd na betaling het volgende aan: Wij hebben bij de koper aangegeven dat u de kavel(s) binnen 3 werkdagen verzendt naar het volgende adres:.......
    Ik heb binnen 3 dagen het pakket verstuurd, en dit zijn dan nog niet eens 3 werkdagen, aangezien hier ook nog om een feestdag (Koningsdag) en een zaterdag ging
    Als ik mij aan de drie werkdagen had gehouden, had ik het pakket pas uiterlijk dinsdag 1 mei hoeven op te sturen. Wat betreft de bezorgtijd van PostNL daar heb ik geen invloed op. Maar ik vermoed dat het pakket zaterdag op het inleverpunt is blijven liggen en deze maandag is opgehaald, zodat u het pakket dinsdag hebt ontvangen. Dit is naar mijn mening ook een normale gang van zaken.
    In iedergeval ben ik blij dat u tevreden was met hoe het item verpakt was. Ik hoop dat u verder veel plezier van uw aankoop hebt.
