An early 19th century turned wood (we believe to be plum wood) ‘Treen’ mortar and pestle.
The large turned mortar has the hint of a crack line to the rim and has a good colour from age while the pestle is very nicely grained.
The pieces are in original condition. (Circa 1840)
Mortar Height 15cm (5.9 inches)
Diameter 14.5cm (5.7 inches)
Pestle Length 22cm (8.7 inches)
Diameter 5cm (2 inches)
