Used as a chemist mortar or apothecary mortar Perfect for in the kitchen and also pretty for display Much prettier in reality than on the pictures, believe me In a good vintage condition, as shown on the pictures, it is old and has been used, a few tiny chips to the marble, normal seen its age and use, nothing serious, this adds to its charm, please zoom in on the pictures to see all the details Very heavy: 8 kilo's!! Sizes of the mortar: 9.8 inches wide at the widest on top (24.5cm) , 5.6 inches high (14cm) Still ready for use, it will also look great in any kitchen decor and give that typical French kitchen decor touch It would make a perfect christmas present for a cook or kitchen addict I have more antique French kitchenware in my Etsy shop, please take a look And another mortar, a white marble mortar with wooden pestle: All my items are also for sale in my shop here in the south of France, so if you really want an item, please buy it right away before it might be sold in my shop here
