Description
Minim measure. Medicine glasses and minim measures were standard pieces of equipment for decades. They were used for accurately measuring out liquid medicines. A minim was a measurement used by apothecaries, equivalent to one drop of water. These measures could have been used in the home, but were often carried by doctors or formed part of a nurse’s kit when carrying out home visits.
