This vintage aluminum mortar and pestle would be a decorative addition to any kitchen decor. Based on its large size, it was probably used in an apothecary when new for compounding drugs or grinding herbs. 

The mortar is 5 inches tall, 6 inches across at top & 3.5 inches across on bottom. The pestle is 9 inches long. The set has a great primitive look with signs of use inside the mortar and on the pestle. There is some rust on the bottom as well as a few tiny chips along top edge,

  • Vintage aluminum mortar and pestle set
  • Oversized, so was possibly intended for use in an apothecary 
  • Wear associated with use gives it an interesting rustic look 
  • Circa 1940's


Good vintage condition. Discoloration and wear (detailed above) are consistent with age and use.


Material:  Aluminum

Measures:  Mortar - 5" tall x 6" in diameter at top x 3.5" at base. Pestle - 9" long

NOTE: Because this is a vintage item, it carries the markers of age you would expect to see. Please review the photos carefully & ask questions because we are unable to accept returns or exchanges.
