Apothecary's mortar and bronze pestle - Brussels, 1746

This mortar was formerly used in the realization of remedies sold in apothecary. In the modern period, this "generally had a wooden counter, chests of drawers with drawers and shelves with jars, reed cruets for syrups, earthenware jars with painted labels. In the making room, the apothecary mainly used a scale, syringes, molds for pills, basins, cauldrons and stills, as well as the pestle and the mortar "which could sometimes reach spectacular dimensions. Our bronze ensemble bears witness to this. Measuring 33.5cm high and 45cm. in diameter, this mortar presents molded decoration. In its center runs an ornamental vegetal frieze. On his lips is the artist's signature: "L.F.V.V M ME FECIT .BRUXELLENSIS ANNO 1746"
