S/2841 Antique Treen 17th Century Lignum Vitae Pestle and Mortar
A fine late 17th century lignum vitae pestle and mortar, having a body of moulded ribbed and waisted design, and raised on a vertical foot. The pestle, we think is original to the mortar, is stepped and rounded with a knop end. Both have a wonderful rich colour and fantastic patination.
Pestle: 9in. (23 cm.) Long
6½ in. (16.5 cm.) High
5 in. (12.5 cm.) Diameter English Circa 1680
