Picture this solid brass mortar and pestle being used in an "apothicaire" (or pharmacy) in the village of Marseille to prepare a prescription in the 1920s. The wear to the pestle tells a unique story and today, repurpose it as a decor piece on it's own, or use as a vase with a petite bouquet of flowers. Sourced from a home in Marseille. 

dimensions: 3"dia x 3.25"H, 5"L pestle
