National Botanic Garden Of Wales ~ Apothecary Mini Inspiration

In my last post, I told you all that we had visited the National Botanic Garden of Wales, for the Hobbies weekend. While we were there, we visited one of their buildings that Houses a full sized Apothecary. Because it was pouring with rain, we had the building to ourselves for about 10 minutes. As you can see, I took loads of pictures, thinking they would be a great reference, for anyone making a miniature Apothecary or Chemist Shop.
There was all manner of Pills and Potions, Surgical tools, a set of Baby Scales and even the Poison Book on its own stand on the Counter. I really enjoyed walking round in there, peering in all the cabinets and trying to pronounce some of the weird and wonderful ingredients.

The details are amazing... and the bottles with their mysterious ingredients are just too "witchy" to be believed!!! (Especially that curvy blue one... wonder what it is!) Thanks for showing so many detailed pictures of the instruments and everything! it is just Fascinating!!!
