This stone mortar from the early 20th century was once used in a provincial kitchen to grind herbs, spices, rice, and other foods. Hand-carved from a solid block of limestone, the mortar has a tiered shape that transitions from a square base to a rounded top. Etched lines pattern the mortar on all sides except for the smoothed interior, where daily use has eroded the original texture over time. Used as a decorative vessel or tabletop planter, the mortar's rustic form and weathered surface adds fantastic texture to the home.
