About

Hand carved from a single block of limestone, this round stone vessel is an early 20th century mortar once used daily in a provincial kitchen to grind herbs, spices, and other foods. Used as a decorative vessel or tabletop planter, the mortar's rustic form and weathered surface adds fantastic texture to the home.
