Strange & Antique Porcelain Medical/pharmaceutical Item~ Coors~ Pill Maker M&p??:
Here is an interesting little med. item up for offer--it's a Coors pharmaceutical pill sieve/maker (that's what I was told). It's from the early to mid. 1900's and measures just 1 3/4" high X 1 3/8" top diameter; it is made of porcelain and has an aluminum pestle thing inside.
Please look at all of my pictures carefully to see details--this is an odd little item--the first of these I've seen, anyway. The porcelain is very thin; there are 3 odd notches in the rim that look like they were purposely put there but for what, I don't know. The lid just sits on top loosly and the pestle thing just sits inside; the bottom of the main piece has tiny holes in the bottom to act like a strainer or sieve. I was told that a pharmacist would put a concoction inside & press it through the holes.
The porcelain has some dark staining and some wear on the main piece and the lid so PLEASE look at all pics carefully! It was raining while I took pics so that's what the water droplets are from...
