A14011
A fantastic, 18th century, court kitchen, pestle and mortar on stand. The stand is turned from a single, solid piece of elm and it measures 67cm. (26 3/8") high by 35.5cm. (14") diameter at its widest part. There are various splits in the wood but this is inevitable due to the density and age of the piece. It has excellent colour and patination. The mortar is a dark grey marble and it measures 51.5cm (20 1/4") across by 28cm. (11") high. There are very minor chips to the marble, on the rim of the piece. There is a recess in the top of the stand and the mortar sits down into it. The total height, when the two pieces are together is 92.5cm. (36 1/2"). The pestle is made from boxwood and measures 50cm. (19 3/4") long by 9.5cm. (3 3/4") diameter at its widest part. There is minor cracking to the wood but the colour and patination is excellent. Overall, this is an exceptional item and it would make a very impressive feature in a large kitchen. £2250.

E17637 An unusual 19th century carving knife with a carved horn handle. Date: c.1860. Size: 32.5cm. (12 3/4") long. The horn handle is well carved in the shape of a horses lower leg and hoof. The steel blade has seen much use and has been sharpened over the years so it is now quite worn. Originally there may have been a metal collar around the handle, where it joins the blade, but this is now missing. There is slight pitting to the steel blade but other than that the knife is in good condition. £59. U.S.A.

E17654 An early, carved horn dessert spoon. This type of item is very difficult to date as they were made over a long period of time. However, going by the style, and also by the wear, and the distortion to the horn, it is probably from the mid to late 18th century. Size: 23cm. (9") long. This piece has been carved from a single section of horn and is simple in form. As previously mentioned, it has distorted over time and this gives the spoon a lot of character. It is in very good condition, with no cracks, and the horn has an interesting patina. £49. U.S.A.
+£10. Western Europe.

D16869 A most unusual steel implement which was used for mulling wine or ale. Date: c.1860. Size: 41.3cm. (16 1/4") long. This piece is just a coil of steel on a long handle with a turned wooden grip. The coil has obviously been well used. It has been heated in a fire and then plunged into the liquid cooling it quickly. This is obvious from the nature of the wear to the steel. It has seen plenty of use but it is in good condition. £72. U.S.A.
+£10. Western Europe.

This iron is has a sliding door on the back, which only lifts to allow a narrow access. It would have had quite a narrow brick for heating, but this is now missing.

Some of the stain has now worn from the wood and there is also a small piece, near the back of the iron, which has been burned. The metal was probably plated originally and again, this has worn. Other than this the piece is in good condition. £72. U.S.A.
