Turned in the form of a stoneware rundlet with barrel shaped body and repetitive ribbed turnings to the rim and foot. The ingenious aspect of this mortar is that there are cavities on both ends - creating a double mortar. When I see ingenious utilitarian design such as this, I am intrigued as to why it didn't become the standard - if I were the craftsman, I would have taken the idea and ran with it! Great sculpture!
Condition: Excellent with a complex surface and appropriate wear (nibs to rims as would be expected).
