APOTHECARY TABLES of yore

The first time I ever heard of an apothecary table was in the Friends episode The One with the Apothecary Table where Rachel bought her apothecary table from Pottery Barn and was trying to convince Pheobe that it was authentic.
I remember loving all the little drawers and have wanted one ever since. I keeping seeing old crackled or faded ones with tons of personality in antique stores, but they are always out of my price range. I don't really know what I would do with so many little drawers, but I'm sure I could find lots of little things to put in them. And I'm sure you have plenty of homeless little things too. Maybe enough to buy your own apothecary table...

So that's what you've been doing all this time. If we ever got an apothecary table, I would definitely contribute some love to fill up some of those spaces.

I love the rattan and leather chest. I saw one like that on an episode of 30 Rock and it looked like a filing cabinet you'd see in a library with the index cards. I thought that was a cool, unexpected piece of furniture for a house.
Do you watch 30 Rock?

I am looking for the actual table from the Friends episode (or one very similar). Do you know if this table was actually made?

In response to the last poster - yes, this table was made, I own one. I just saw a posting for one on the NY craigslist (now expired) - good luck!!

Great looking tables. But like you said, these things are a bit pricey. Maybe I really need to start saving if I want one of those things.
