In excellent condition, perfectly intact, of excellent workmanship

Gorgeous small pharmacy mortar made of Carrara marble with a central inlaid and, on the 3 sides, lilies of green alps marble, symbol of the city of Florence from which the mortar comes and in the remaining side is a maple leaf, entirely hand carved.
Dating back to the early 19th century. Provenance: it comes from an old well-known Florence pharmacy, where it was used as a bowl to mash or shred spices and herbs.
An item of high quality and fine workmanship. Thanks to its size, a little smaller than usual, and to the strength and durability of the Carrara marble, it can be used both indoors or outdoors.
A really prestigious and flawless item.
In perfect condition and intact
In case of shipping, it will be delivered in a strong wooden crate, after professional packaging.
