This petite pinewood vessel is an early 20th century mortar once used daily in a provincial kitchen to grind herbs, spices, and condiments. The rustic container was hand-turned to a rounded, baluster form and a surface pattern of incised and raised horizontal bands. Aged with weathered texture and a rich patina, the mortar is ideal today as a tabletop planter, vase or pen holder.

Minor splits to wood throughout. Base of mortar is rounded and does not sit flat.
