Lovely early 20th century French porcelain mortar and pestle with hand-decorated geometric border and pink, green and blue floral design. Deep rich gold trim outlines the top, pink border and around the bottom. I suspect this was made more for decorative purposes than functional because of the delicate hand-painted flowers inside the bowl.

The bottom of the mortar has three distinct maker's marks. One has crossed arrows and reads "Porcelaine deParis" and "Made in France". One is a large number "3" stamped into the piece...and the third (in red) is a logo design.

No damage or wear, not even to the gold. It's a beauty!

Mortar (bowl): 2 1/2" tall by 4" across the top
Pestle: 4" long
