Relics of the Nile is pleased to present this very large Egyptian stone mortar. The mortar would have been used to grind grain and other food items for daily use. This is a very fine, large example with an outstanding four-handled design. The mortar is in excellent condition and remains with traces of pigment in a ring around the inside circumference of the mortar. This is a very substantial piece and is an amazing large display of ancient Egyptian pottery. The mortar itself measures 15" in diaper across the handles and stands 7" in height. Egypt, Middle Kingdom, Ca. 2000 B.C.
