Large Primitive Pestle & Mortar
A very large primitive pestle and mortar, the mortar hand hewn from a single tree trunk. It has taken on a terrific patina through age and use. Some cracks which add to the appealing rustic character. It could be used as a statement planter as part of a modern rustic design scheme. The pestle has evidence of historic woodworm at one end (thoroughly treated as a precaution). It really is an impressive piece and full of rustic charm. Early 20th century.
