Stefano Romeo's medicine case

This 19th Century “portable domestic medical cabinet” by S. Maw Son & Thompson, London, belonged to Stefano Romeo and is preserved today in a private collection in Reggio Calabria. It contains a number of medical instruments, including a little scale with small milligrams weights, a map and glass bottles containing chemicals and drugs of that time.
