A really great vintage stoneware and ceramic, ergonomic mortar and pestle with a wide rim and a hole for fingers to hold it firmly. Made of stoneware with a white porcelain coating. It has a nice larger and deep bowl, and the wide rim on the side. Spice grinder is perfect for any cook and kitchen, also a great display in general and nice for a retro kitchen. The hole on the side can also be used to store the pestle. You can also really get a good grip and build up momentum nicely. Not sure if its dishwasher safe but in my experience it is best to hand clean.
CONDITION: Used vintage condition. No damage - no chips, cracks, repairs. Slight staining from use as happens with these pieces usually after the first use. Overall excellent.
SIZE: 7 inches across - bowl is just shy of 5 inches and it stands 3 inches tall - the pestle is 6 1/2 inches tall and the ball is 6 inches in diameter

Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
From the first time I watched a classic movie as a young girl, and watched Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new. What you see in my shop is my personal collection. Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
