GUNSIGHT ANTIQUES

This outstanding heavy cast and turned bronze # 8 mortar and pestle set dates to the earlier through mid 1800s and remains in eye appealing condition with good evidence of age and period use while remaining in excellent condition with a nice untouched natural age patina. The heavy bronze mortar stands approximately 5 3/8 inches high , is 5 3/8 inches in diameter at the mouth and 3 3/8 inches across the base. The bronze pestle is size number 8 marked as is the mortar and measures about 9 7/8 inches in length. Not to be confused with more frequently encountered later examples or the common Chinese castings, this rarely found 19th century bronze apothecary mortar & pestle set will make a nice addition to any quality medical grouping or will go well simply as a period decorative piece.
