One of the largest pharmacies when it was completed
Apoteket Lejonet or Teschska palatset on Stortorget in Malmö is one of the city most historical buildings from the 19th century.
The pharmacy was completed in 1896, and it was one of the largest pharmacies when it was built, almost as big as the tsar pharmacy in Moscow. It's one of four culture pharmacies that the state owns (the rest being Apoteket Svanen in Lund, Apoteket Storken in Östermalm, Stockholm and Apoteket Korpen in Gamla Stan, Stockholm).
The architects for Apoteket Lejonet were Lindvall & Boklund, a newly started architectural firm with August Lindvall and Harald Boklund.
The facade is designed with bay windows and balconies adorned with beautiful reliefs; even John Tesch (the building's owner) himself is pictured on the facade of the building. The balconies show pharmacists when they work with mortars, scales, and retorts.
The style is mixed German-Dutch, Renaissance but also Art Nouveau, Gothic and Romanesque styles are included. The stone for the facade was housed from Roslagen in Stockholm.
