A wonderful, chunky, 17th century iron mortar, signed and dated WG 1669.

 

dia:9 in (10.75 in across the handles) x h:7.25 in.

 

Considered rare in iron as the vast majority of surviving mortars are made of bronze.

 

A large area of restoration to the rim, particularly successful on the upper, most visible side; less so beneath. With associated, later pestle.
