H954A 19th century original blue painted mortar and pestle. It is thick walled, with a nicely turned base, no breaks or cracks. The mortar retains remnants of several incised rings and the dry painted surface shows evidence of wear and chop marks indicative of use. The pestle, which appears to be original to the mortar, has the original old patina surface. Wonderful form.
Measurements: 6" top diameter x 5” bottom diameter x 7 1/2" tall. The Pestle measures 10 1/4" long.
