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.
