This 19th-century South Korean stone mortar was originally used in a traditional apothecary. Its open bowl allowed free movement of a pestle to effectively grind, mash, and macerate herbs and seeds to prepare healing medicines. Used as a decorative vessel or tabletop planter, the mortar's rustic form and hand-carved texture makes for the perfect 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.”
