This petite pinewood vessel is an early 20th century mortar once used daily in a provincial kitchen to grind herbs, spices, and condiments. The rustic container was hand-turned to a rounded, baluster form and a surface pattern of incised and raised horizontal bands. Aged with weathered texture and a rich patina, the mortar is ideal today as a tabletop planter, vase or pen holder.

Minor splits to wood throughout. Base of mortar is rounded and does not sit flat.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“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.”
