Mortar Pestle Barrel Form Great Patina


Regular price $138.50

Nice example of an early footed hand carved mortar and pestle (1840-1860) rendering a simplistic barrel form shape. Delicious dark patina on both pieces. Smooth surface from years of use with a “make-do” filled in repair to remedy a crack in the middle body section that cascades downward toward the bottom.

Two other tight cracks are located on the footed area as well as on the bottom. A knot is present on the underside of the footed base along with the concentric lathe turnings.

Pestle sports a dark surface with lighter areas present which makes for a special piece. The mushroom knob can also function as a smaller grinder. Minor wood loss to pestle.

This piece awaits a bucket bench or can be placed in an open cupboard! Wonderful addition to your pantry!

Overall height is 11 ¾” tall including the pestle, mortar by itself stands 7” tall, measures almost 4 ¾” across the top opening and measures 5” across the bottom. Pestle stands 9 ¾” tall, measures 1” across the top and measures 2 ½” across the bottom.
