"Octagonal Wood Mortar With Concave Sidewalls"
Native wood mortar (elm or chestnut) shaped with eight concave sides and provided with a flat-tipped pestle. Its wooden nature and the heel of the pest attest to a use for the trituration of aromatic plants, thus preventing slipping during the work done by an apothecary or a cook. Inverted triangles marks are visible on two sides and pins on the bottom of the pestle. in addition, "MICHEL" is engraved on one of the flanks, which leads us to its French origins. Several provinces can claim its creation but the nature of its wood, elm or chestnut, we are encouraged to bring it closer to the Armorican provinces in the late eighteenth century, with a certain archaism for its octagonal side. With a nice patina made by an intense use, it is in good condition and is pleasantly distinguished in front of all the examples made of bronze and stone of the same period
