Small Double Sided Mortar and Pestle
Here is a very nice and well used small mortar and pestle. It is hard to see the indentations on both sides of the mortar in the photos. The centers are about 1/4″ lower on the working areas. There is a nice polish from use in the middle of both sides and the outer edges still show the pecking from being shaped. This is a great and unusually small example. It was possibly made to be portable. The pestle was found a couple years later in the same field. That doesn’t necessarily mean they were ever a pair but they do seem to fit each others contour. The pestle has a nutting divot on it’s working side and has pecking from rough shaping still present. It also has a nice smoothing on the bottom from use. They display very well together.
Long Flat Banded Slate Pestle
It is amazing that this one survived considering all of the brushes with farm equipment that it has had waiting to be recovered. It appears to have been used both on the flat side and on the end. The pecking from it’s making process is still very visable.
