Cast in iron with a raised floral design, this vintage mortar was originally used in a traditional apothecary to create herbal medicines. The swelling shape allowed free movement of a pestle to effectively grind, mash, and macerate herbs and seeds in preparation of healing remedies. Beautifully aged with a rich patina, this iron mortar is perfect as a petite planter or home accent.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
