Antique brass mortar and pestle - vintage apothecary style
Vintage or antique brass mortar and pestle. Heavy brass mortar with no visible seam marks (although we know they are there somewhere) and double ended pestle. Both have a nice soft rich patina that you might want to polish off, but not us. It took it too long to get there. We have respect for determination. Pestle has an especially dark patina.
How old is it? Hmm. No makers mark. No visible seams. Lots of nicks and dings, but are those there for artistic effect or are they genuine. Lots of dings on the edges. We think this set has been places and done things but we ask you to review the pictures carefully.
SIZE mortar is 4.25" diameter x 2 7/8" tall, pestle is 5.75" long
CONDITION Antique. Old. Worn. Perfect.
This is a vintage item. It has been used and loved and it has a history. Every attempt is made to describe it accurately, please examine photos carefully as we are unable to accept returns.
