Pre War Small Composition Pestle & Mortar with Original Hardwood Handle
A quality early 20th Century small composition pestle and mortar.
This is a great piece of quality kitchenalia. It is a small size “00” but is perfect for use preparing smaller meals. The solid mortar has a pouring lip and is impressed with “WARRANTED ACID PROOF 00 MADE IN ENGLAND” on the base. The original pestle has a hardwood handle.
As with all antique and vintage items, this shows minor signs of age and wear. There are a few minor nibbles and ceramic faults on the base of the mortar. There are also some marks and discoloration in places, and some odd black scuffs on the outside. Overall, though, this is a great solid piece with a lovely patina and smoothness.
Height, 5.5cm; Width, 9.5cm (at widest); Handle, 15.5cm long.
