Wonderful Antique Mortar and Pestle, from a Moulton's Pharmacy which opened for business in the mid 1800's. This is a huge size, this beauty stood on the counter at one of their locations on display. It is so rare to find a decorative classic mortar and its pestle! Traditional timeless design, made of vitrified porcelain, which was called "stain free" porcelain.
To find this with its pestle is half a miracle! Characteristic unglazed finish provides resistance for efficient grinding, the deep sides help keep the ingredients in the bowl. The heavy weight of the porcelain pestle does the work for you. The pestle has a wooden handle. This is a usable antique, collectors love to display and use these in their kitchen these days. Very heavy and large, this has a chip and aging as shown. The pestle wooden handle has a split. Fabulous find for your cuisine, to use as a display for vegetables and fruit, or to make your world famous pesto.
