Apothecary Chest with Blue Paint

This Apothecary chest is all original save for the blue paint on the case. What appears to be semi-circles around each drawer are the remains of paper labels put on the front to designate drawer contents. Each drawer has three compartments. There are a total of 45 drawers in this chest which means 135 compartments. No wonder the user needed labels to know what was where. A really neat chest in my opinion. About 100 years old.
