An absolutely wonderful tudor period bronze / bell metal mortar. This item which dates to circa 16th- to early 17th century is decorated with panels of fleur de lys.
It has sustained much damage to it in the form of a split as shown ,however the original owner must have valued it highly as it still retains its early 17th century wire repair to the outside. The inside has much period lead infil to make this valued item usable again.
A stunning period piece with the repair giving it much style and character.
As with all of my antiquities and coins this item comes complete with a certificate of authenticity. Period style: Tudor and Stuart Dimension: 17.5 CM In Dia / 11.0 CM In Height. Item location: In the Centre
