GUNSIGHT ANTIQUES

This outstanding heavy cast and turned bronze 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. This small doctor's bag size bronze mortar stands approximately 2 1/8 inches high , is 2 1/8 inches in diameter at the mouth and 1 7/16 inches across the base. The bronze pestle measures about 3 1/8 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.
