This is a really special find. This pestle and mortar has a  distinguished provenance, having come from a traditional dispensing pharmacy and used to crush various ingredients prior to preparing an extemporaneous prescription. It is big and heavy, with fabulous markings and a swoon worthy patina, telling of its history. 

As per the norm for pharmaceutical use, the mortar and the head of the pestle are made from porcelain, while the handle of the pestle is made of a beautiful dark rich and very tactile wood. This is known as a Wedgwood. The pestle has its size marked '12' embossed in the porcelain base.  It would make a fabulous talking point in any kitchen display.

Mortar - 26cm wide x 15cm tall. Pestle  - 35cm long. 

Please note it is very heavy so will be sent via Parcelforce.
