Early Burl Mortar

It is quite rare to find a mortar of this size and quality turned from a piece of burl wood. It measures 7 1/8" tall and 5 3/4" in diameter.

The shape is pleasing and the circumferential tool marks add to the overall look of the piece. The burl pattern extends through most of the mortar and is tight, producing a high quality surface. The interior appears to have been turned to about 3/4 of the depth, then finished with a hand gouge.

Especially nice is the condition. There are no chips or splits which are common to burl items. There is a small "saddle" in the top rim. The surface is untouched, just the way you like to find it.

This one is for those who appreciate great treen ware. We just wish the pestle had survived as well.
