THE MUSEUM OF PHARMACY

THE OFICINA

.

 

Oficina is the traditional component of an apothecary, being the space where the medical products were displayed.
The furniture of the room was manufactured in Vienna, in 1902, and it belonged to the former apothecary named To the Black Vulture.
The objects presented here pharmaceutical vessels made of wood, clay, porcelain, glass, iron-cast and bronze grinding mortars, scales and weights in the Viennese yardsticks show both the essence and the evolution of pharmaceutical substances as well as the utensils used to produce them.
The oldest instrument used for the preliminary operation in medicine preparing is a bronze grinding mortar, dated 1597.
Dated back to a period over three and a half centuries (18th - 1 of 20th c.), the exhibits envisage the constant interest for keeping the balance between the useful and the aesthetic.
It is here that one can admire an exquisite wooden jars collection from the 18th century, presenting painted signs and, some of them, alchemic symbols.
