From my collection is a nice sized ash burl mortar purchased from the well respected upstate New York dealer Doug Blanchard. Measures only 5 1/2" tall and about 4 1/2" across the top. There is a 1/2" lip around opening as well as a turned base. There is a 1 1/2' split down from the rim which is not uncommon because of the loose grain of burl. About 11 old, inactive critter holes on the side of the base and 3 more in the middle of the body. Dry untouched patina. While not "born" with the piece, also included is an antique pestle wearing a coat of old dry black paint on the handle.
