For auction is a beautiful antique EH Sargent test tube rack made of wood and
5 test tubes with etched 50 CC on the tubes themselves. The rack is 15 inches
wide x 3 in depth and 7 inches tall. The tubes are 12 inches tall and 3/4 inch
in diameter. Each tube as mentioned is etched with a 50CC etching which gives
some indication of age. This was done prior to paint or other labeling methods.
E H Sargent was a wholesaler and catalog house for chemists supplies that was
founded in 1852 in Chicago.
The white plate that the bottom of the tubes rest on is plastic and it's held
in place with three small angled fasteners. Can't tell if that is original to
the piece but I sell things "as found", no cleaning or polishing.
