No Spanish kitchen (or any kitchen) is complete without a good, sturdy, mortar & pestle. You'll soon wonder how you ever crushed garlic, ground spices, or did anything without one. This handsome example is a rich natural terracotta highlighted with delicate cream-colored decoration on one side. The bowl is generously proportioned, with 4 corner points which serve as pouring spouts as well as resting nooks for the pestle. Mortar measures approximately 5.75" across, and 4" high. Wooden pestle is included. IMPORTED.
