Pilón pequeño. Tiny mortar and pestle

Pilón pequeño. Tiny mortar and pestle

This is a tiny mortar and pestle (term in English?) that I bought years ago. It was made by a craftsman who has since retired, on account of his asthma. I wish I could get more.

Es un pilón pequeño hecho por un artesano, ya retirado. Es una lástima que no los pueda ya hacer por su asma.

Thanks for looking.
Gracias por mirar.

I've never seen a mortar and pestle of that shape! That is really nice looking. Something functional as well as something to display. I like it. Mine have always been round, like most. You have something special there.

Except for that one, mine are all round, too, Barb. I saw it and I had to have it. I don't use it, really it's tiny, perhaps two inches, with the pestle. Purely ornamental. I actually collect them, but now is when I have a camera good enough to take pictures, so I'm slowly adding to the photo collection.

Thanks for peeking in and God's best! :)
