This is a museum quality piece. Just gorgeous. You could use it immediately (though we always recommend washing, or adding another coat of seasoning before use). I don’t see a sprue here or a bottom gate so I’m making the assumption that this is a later piece but it could actually be of European origin and much earlier. Pestle is barbell shaped and double ended. It was hand cast in two halves and has a well defined middle ring which was probably a stab at a more ergonomic design.. Casting quality is very high.
4” 1/2 diameter (at top of lip), 5” tall. Pestle is 7” long.
Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.
No cracks, chips. Sits flat when tested on a sheet of glass. Beautiful interior smoothness typical of this casting..
As always we are happy to take back pieces if you are not 100% satisfied. (Please see return policy)
