Circa late 1700's heavy brass pharmaceutical mortar and pestle. This is a handsome mid sized brass Knurled mortar with pestle. Covered heavily with aged Blue patina. We have tried to retain the patina while lightly cleaning. Truly a unique piece of medical and Pharmaceutical History. One can only imagine the concoctions and portents that were created in these ancient pieces of medical/pharmaceutical history.
Great piece for that vintage collector or start your own fine collection of unique and rare brass Mortar's and pestle's. Has a great loud clear ring like a expensive made bell.
Size: Mortar 5.75"H x 5.5"W x 3.25" base
