A vintage carved treen footed mortar with pestle, and with the outline of zebra and lion carved in the side of the mortar. The pestle is made of turned wood and we are not certain whether the two were made at the same time or not.
There are some minor dinks etc here and there due to either wear and tear and/or natural shrinkage but both pestle and mortar are structurally sound.
The mortar stands approximately 4.625in high and measures about 3.75in at the outer rim. The pestle is approximately 6.625in long and is tapering in form with the widest part measuring approximately 1.25in in diameter. It appears to be made from hardwood. Exact age unknown. Believed to be African in origin.
