This is the 4th mortar and pestle in the Schering Series. The pestle does belong to this mortar and it is marked with the name Coricidin. Excellent condition, no corrosion. The OTC (over the counter) division of the Schering Corporation, promoted one of their OTC medications, Coricidin, by giving away a mortar & pestle to pharmacists who purchased a display from Schering. The display was the "Cold Relief Center Display" which contained Coricidin and later other products like Afrin. A mortar & pestle was placed in each display as thanks for purchasing the display from Schering. Each year Schering would have a different design and shape for each mortar & pestle. See photos.
