This rare large and impressive lignum vitae mortar and pestle probably dates from the late 17th or possibly early 18th century. The tapered cylindrical body with ogee mouldings below the wide flat rim enclosing a shallow depression, the rim with the painted remains of initial R.M.S. Mortars of this scale and dimension are very uncommon.
As can be seen in the photographs and consistent with age and use there are old shrinkage cracks in areas overall, the rim with some old minor chips to the outer edge. The pained initials are worn. Generally very sound and in good functional order.
