Ceramic Mortar and Pestle

(5 customer reviews)


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.

Our product images are photos of the actual item, but please keep in mind that each piece is individually handmade and hand painted and therefore may vary slightly in color and pattern.

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.

    Llegó en perfectas condiciones, bien protegido. No es fácil encontrar morteros de cocina tradicionales (del tamaño adecuado, con labio para verter contenido fácilmente, y mano de madera) en los EEUU.

    I’m writing to let you know that I received my mortar and pestle today.

    The item was very well packaged and I’m grateful for that.
    Once I opened it, I could see that I made a great purchase. It is exactly as it looks on your web site. I am very delighted. You can see from the picture it’s just sitting on my kitchen counter for now. I am trying to find a better spot for it to stay.

    Thank you so much for keeping in touch with me all along the way and leading up to the delivery. I hope you have many customers ordering these products. They are beautiful and I can tell they’re well-made.

    All the best to you and your establishment.
