Measurement: 5" x 4.75" x 2.5"

Material: Maple, traces of thinning white paint

Condition: Fine

Additional Information: Vase and ring-turned handle continuing to rectangular print
having canted shoulders. The word “FANCY’ stands proud allowing for impressing the
word…we believe, into large block of butter. The face shows evidence of butterfat. After
use, butter prints were boiled thus the paint on handle and block has thinned; the
printing face was never painted. Fancy butters and premium butters made in small
batched were/are produced.

Title: Antique Pestle for Pounding Rice and/or Corn, Refined Turning
New England
Date/Period: 18th or early 19th Century


Antique Pestle for Pounding Rice and/or Corn, Refined Turning New England, entire view

Measurement: Length: 31.75"

Material: Maple, turned from the solid

Condition: Fine

Additional Information: Beautifully turned, great color and patina; mushroom terminus
continuing to a tapering shaft with a shoulder slightly below center; shaft flares before
double stepped robust masher. Best we have seen. These are always very crude.
Large mortar and pestles for pounding grain were used in the process of threshing, or
separating, grains of rice from the rice plant; also, for working corn kernels and other
grains. Threshing was a very labor-intensive process. The large mortars featured a
hollowed-out bowl where harvested rice hulls and/or corn were placed to be processed.
The hulls were pounded with the pestle until the grains of rice are separated out or
cornmeal was worked to a coarse consistency [maize].
