This is a well constructed, heavy brass mortar and pestle set. It is heavy for its size,it is not the cheap, thin brass from places like India.
It is in great vintage condition for not having been cleaned in 30 years!
Please note in the pictures the copper colored patina around the rimand the spot of green patina on the inside.
Due totheirage, both pieces display color variations, scratches and patinas in places.I, on purpose, did not try to remove theseold patinas as they only increasethe value of the item and display the character of this fine, vintage collectible!
