A very large ceramic mortar with matching pestle

A wonderful, large, 'true' scientific ceramic mortar with matching wood and ceramic pestle.

Both pieces are matching, marked as size 12. The base of the mortar has a stamp bearing ‘warranted acid proof’ which is an American marking found on science-grade pieces though this would look wonderful in a kitchen.

This set has good age.

Equally stunning in a garden or kitchen, or as part of an apothecary collection.

A highly decorative piece and very rare to find both pieces at this size.


All approximate


Max width 34cm

Height 17.5cm

Pestle length 35.5cm

Very heavy!

Skull is life sized for scale
