This early 20th-century mortar and pestle is made of brass with an honest patina. Both the mortar and pestle are traditional in style. The mortar has a classic bell-shaped body and the pestle has two flat ends. Brass mortar and pestles were used for both food and apothecary. This makes a lovely decorative piece on a bookshelf, kitchen, or bar and looks even better as a collection with similar mortar and pestles. Mortar 4.5" dia x 4"h, pestle 1.5"dia x 7.5"h.
