Dress up your kitchen with this intriguing set that is as functional as it is beautiful. Every pair is handmade to our specifications by our artisan partners from a choice of pink marble or white onyx that are respectively reminiscent of strawberry ice cream and a lovely winter moon. This miniature size is ideal for grinding spices, herbs or for crushing medications both at and away from home.
Due to the nature of this organic material, every piece is one-of-a-kind. Cracks, holes and variations in hue and markings are common.
This artisan family in Central Mexico has been working with stone for over three generations. While they make smaller custom pieces for our collection, their specialty has traditionally been larger sculptural works, along with sinks and counters for custom homes. While this particular stone is from Puebla, they source their materials throughout Mexico for a range of textures, hues and styles.
Approximately 7cm wide x 4cm tall, with 7cm long pestle
