A solid mahogany 19th century chemist's pill making machine, which was used in the following manner: the pill mass, previously prepared in a mortar, was rolled into the correct diameter lengths and placed on the grooved plate; it was cut and divided by pressing downwards and sliding the top section back and forth; they were then rounded by rotating them in a pill rounder and then when hard, silvered. The whole has a good rich colour and patination.
