In excellent overall condition and intact - item of excellent workmanship

Stunning and rare Nembro "Tabacon" marble apothecary mortar, hand carved and decorated on 2 sides with bull faces, symbols of strength and masculinity.
Please note the colour of the "Tabacon" marble: the presence of ferrous minerals inside give it a precious tobacco tone. The animal horns are impeccable, precise and fine.
Dating back to the 19th century, this mortar comes from a well-known pharmacy in Turin (the bull is the symbol of the town), where it was used just a few times for its real use, namely as a bowl to mash or shred spices, herbs, etc. It was mainly used as a decorative item, given its unusual decorations with animal faces.
This mortar is one of a kind, considering its type, quality, excellent workmanship and high value. The lot is very prestigious and flawless and the Nembro marble is lively and bright.
Perfect as an ornament, a piece of furniture or whatever you want. Surely it won’t go unnoticed.
In perfect condition, without defects and imperfections.
It will be shipped with appropriate packaging.
Shipping throughout Italy, Europe and the rest of the world at very low rates, with safe and trackable delivery.

Dimensions:
- width 32 cm
- length 32 cm
- height 19 cm
- marble edge thickness 3 cm
- hole diameter 18.5 cm.
Weight: 14 kg.
