I have been buying and selling 18th and 19th century country antiques for approximately 35 years concentrating in early paint, iron, lighting, and items to be found in the early kitchen. For the past several years I have shown in the Nan Gurley antique shows.
This 8 3/4 in. tall hand carved hornbeam mortar has a 4 1/2 inch top diameter. This is a very hard to find example of a hornbeam. The inside tapers down, This mortar is carved out of one piece of wood. The pestle which is 10 1/2 " long probably did not come with the mortar originally but it compliments this mortar.
Here is a great blue firkin. It is 12 inches in height and 11 inches in diameter. It has copper tacks on the fingers. The firkin's staves are tight and the hoops are tight. The inside is very clean. I am sure this is the firkins original paint. Great condition! No lid.

This bowl is out of round from age and use measuring 16 1/2" to 17 1/2" in diameter and standing nearly 5 inches tall. The creamy yellow paint is original to the bowl. There are no checks or cracks in the bowl. The line you see at the bottom of the bowl is very shallow and was perhaps made by a knife but it does not appear to be a crack and it does not go through. This is a nice size bowl for the top of your kitchen table. Shipping is included in the price.
