Antique Solid Brass Carved Design Mortar and Pestle

This is a solid, heavy mortar and pestle set made all brass. This appears to be quite old. I'm thinking 19th century. It has a natural age and patina to the brass. I will leave it as is, uncleaned. Some marks here and there and the pestle has little nicks at the end from use. This was likely used in an old apothecary shop.
There are etchings all around the mortar and a sturdy base. The pestle also has lovely detail and etchings. Mortar measures 4 1/2" tall and 4 1/4" across the top opening. It measures 2 1/2 pounds alone! The pestle is 7 1/2" long and weights almost a full pound on its own! Heavy set! Perfect to grind up your dried herbs!
