Antique Victorian Small Sized Composition Pestle & Mortar with A Fantastic Patina By Arnold & Sons

antique victorian arnold sons small medium composition pestle mortar treen handle

A unique late Victorian / early 20th Centur small composition pestle and mortar.

This is a unique piece of kitchenalia. In a used condition, this pestle and mortar has a unique colouring and patina which is the result of years of use.

The solid mortar base is a Size 1, measuring 12cm in diameter and 7cm high. It is stained from use but is perfectly good to use. There is some wear to the pouring lip but is otherwise is very good condition. On the base is a makers’ mark for Arnold & Sons of London.

The pestle has a wonderful timeworn charm. The hardwood handle is worn down in some places, creating a lovely feel to it. It is solidly attached to the composition grinder, which has some specs or wear where it is joined to the handle. It has the number ‘2’ imprinted on it, and measures 21cm in length and 4.5cm at its widest.

In summary, this is a great piece of kitchenalia which will look amazing on display but is also good to use.
