London: Pharmacy Restaurant, 1998 – 1999
We offer here 8 out of 24 matchboxes and matchbooks that Hirst designed for his original Pharmacy restaurant in Nottinghill, London. We are informed (thank you Ralph Gilhooly) that only 18 matchbooks and 6 matchboxes were made before it closed although the number on the back of the boxes suggests 60.
We offer here matchbox numbers 20, 21, 22, 23, 24 (all complete with original green topped matches and in fine condition) and matchbooks numbers 08, 10 and 12. The early numbers in this series of object multiples are particularly hard to find, nr 10 here has the matches missing, nr ten has a quarter of the matches missing (5 out of 20) and nr 8 is complete and in fine condition,
Price is for all eight items as a group
