Miniature Classical Brass Mortar

An elegant little vessel is this gleaming small mortar that was used for grinding small amounts of medicine, etc., probably in a pharmacy or clinic. Its proportions and sturdy construction make it very appealing. French or Italian, circa 1800. Approximately 2-5/8 inches high and 2-3/8 inches in diameter.
