Antique mortar with recent wooden pestle. Distressed, hand-hewn black granite from Rajasthan's Aravalli Hills. Destined for the contemporary kitchens of Europe and beyond.IMAGES 1 - 10.
This beautiful antique Indian karale, or mortar, would have once been central to Indian rural life in Rajasthan prior to the arrival ofelectricity, and the ubiquitous blender. 
Today it's destined to be employed in a more contemporary 21st century kitchen environmentin the role it spent decades faithfully performing. For that reason we are listing it here onlacewing-provencal. Hewn out of a single piece of black granite, with a wonderful time-aged patination to prove it.
We have recently sourced a number of antique karales, mortars and pestles, in both marble and granite.  Unusually, they are all of a fair size or bigger, and come with a matching pestle. Not as common as you'd think.We often come across mortarswithout pestles, probably because these are both heavy and substantial, and difficult to mislay. Unlike the lighter pestles? For this reason, this antique mortar has been coupled with a recent Indian hardwood pestle.
A second example in red sandstone is available here on lacewing-provencal. Other examples are also to be found on our companion eBay shop, lacewing-interiors.
