This ceramic mortar has a traditional Spanish design that is pretty enough to leave out on a counter as home decor. It measures approximately 5″ x 5″ x 3.5 inches high and is signed on the bottom by the artist that painted it. All our ceramics are lead free and food safe. You can clean your mortar in the dishwasher but we recommend hand washing. The wood pestle must be hand washed.
Ceramic Mortar and Pestle
This hand painted ceramic mortar and pestle is not only beautiful, but useful for crushing garlic, herbs and spices. The mortar is substantial in weight and is individually hand painted by the de la Cal artisans in the town of Puente del Arzobispo in the region of Toledo. The pestle is made from one solid piece of natural wood that darkens nicely with use.
