Large Heavy Antique Wooden Mortars and Pestle - Old "Koringstamper"

R695.00

ANTIQUE HEAVY WOODEN MORTAR AND PESTLE - KORINGSTAMPER
Beautiful decorator or collector's piece!

 

Exact age of the piece is unknown, but looks to be at least a hundred years old. We are however not experts, so please view the images and do your own research.
The pestle stands 29cm high, with a rim diameter of 17-19cm.
It was carved from a single tree stump, so is not symmetrical.
The wood has been varnished.
Two mortars are included, about 29cm in length. Not sure if they are the same age as the pestle.

  

There are slightly rusty metal bands nailed to the rim and the base. The nails used appear to be the old hand forged ones.
This is a really nice piece with lots of character, not seen every day!

All questions welcome.
7 Day money back guarantee.
