This is such an amazing and rare piece! This solid brass apothecary mortar and pestle has great old patina and wonderful form. It is very large and has lovely squared handles. This piece is fantastic because it shows its age so well, with many digs in the pestle, adding so much vintage character. Just an amazing "old world" piece for your collection, display, or use in the kitchen (great for blending herbs)! The mortar has a gorgeous flared rim, incised lines banding, and the original matching pestle.
The mortar is 4.5 inches high, 5 inches diameter across the top, and the pestle is 8.5 inches. This set is unmarked and weighs over 5 lbs! This stunning piece is likely from the late 1700s-1800s.
