Wonderful Antique French Marble Mortar and Pestle, from a French Pharmacy where this beauty stood on the counter as display. It is so rare to find a decorative classic mortar and its pestle! From the late 1800's - very early 1900's, traditional timeless design with four lug handles.
Hand cut from marble, with a slight sparkle, this is a usable antique, collectors love to display and use these in their kitchen these days. Very heavy, sourced in a village in the French countryside, this piece has chips and darkening towards the bottom. The pestle is porcelain, with a glazed handle. Fabulous find for your cuisine, to use with your home grown herbs!
