James Young Simpson's Medicine Chest

This week's object is a medicine case owned by James Young Simpson. Cases such as this would hold various remedies of the time, that doctors would use on their patients. The top of the case was embossed with an S and a red hand, as well as having three removable drawers. There is also an attractive brass lock on the front of the case.
