~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

A handsome mortar and pestle turned out of lignum vitae. The mortar has a solid base and a waist that expands outward, ending with a wide ring articulated by a smaller one beneath it. The pestle, which has a convenient turned handle, was turned from a similar piece of lignum vitae. The mortar has shrinkage cracks but is as solid as iron!

Diameter: 5-12”; Height: 8”; Pestle length: 10-1/4”

English, 19th century

Price: $245
