The apothecary’s shop of the ancient sisters' hospital, of the 18th century. In 1700, a rich draper, Etienne Pollo, is responsible for the founding of Thoissey’s hospital. In 1701, the duke of Maine gave the letters patent for the creation of “L’Hôpital de la Charité”. The apothecary's shop was built between 1731 and 1735. Walnut boiseries on the walls are the work of Jean Noblet, master carpenter. The ceiling was painted by Lugnot on a marouflaged canvas (cf. photo). About 60 faience pots from Nevers decorated with a cobalt blue camaieu were used to collect the substances used by the apothecary, they were placed in niches and Renaissance style sideboards.
