Antique Solid Brass Large Apothecary Mortar and Pestle #11 Circa 1700s - 1850s Metalware Vintage
Mortars and pestles made of brass were very common up to the 1800’s. They were relatively easy to make, extremely tough, long lasting and could be made into attractive designs. Brass mortars and pestles were made by either being cast or by using a lathe; using a tool to carve away the excess metal – leaving a beautifully piece of brasswork art!
Brass pieces are more likely to have been used to transfer flavors, however pieces of this size were probably used in an apothecary shop (drug store) for compounding medicines.
This mortar was produced on a lathe, as there is no visible welding seams to suggest the piece was cast. It measures 6-1/4” tall, has a 6-3/4” flared top and a 4-1/4” base diameter.
The inside has scratching and a slight well at the base from usage and wear that is consistent with age. The base is stamped with an “11”. The pestle is 11-3/4” long, with 2” ends.
The pieces were produced to be used for decades more to come – their combine weight is almost 10 pounds!!
They have only been lightly cleaned of years and years of dust, dirt and debris, so they still retain all the original patina. They are in amazing antique condition! No gouges, nicks, or dents.
