Description

A nice old brass mortar and pestle. These pieces have seen a lot of use, the mortar is certainly showing its age.  The pestle is in very good condition.  I don't see any repairs, but there are many dents in the side showing it was a much used item.  I believe the base is cast iron, there is rust inside and it is dark on the bottom.  I have not cleaned either piece.

I have been trying to research this online, I have not seen another one in the exact style.  I do believe it is possibly from the 1700's or at least 1800's.

The mortar stands approx. 5 1/2 inches tall and 5 1/2 inches across the top.  The pestle is approx. 9 1/2 inches long.
