I don't know what made me enter an antique store here in Australia but neither the less I found myself staring at this wonderful big mortar an pestle. It's not granite or marble, but some sort of white stone or clay, and the pestle is a mixture of the white stone and wood. It has a stamp on the bottom saying Made In France. I can't quite remember the size, but it's big, kinda like a dinner plate size I guess.
Do I need this in my life? I do have a 4 cup Thai granite m&p but this one is certainly talking to me.
