French Marble Mortar
This marble mortar has mellowed nicely with age. The wear around with rim with so many hands grinding so many herbs to cook so many meals is wonderful. This mortar was found in France and dates from the 19th century. It measures 10" in diameter with the four lugs and 8" without. The base is 4 3/8" in diameter and the mortar is 5 1/2" tall.
