This wooden mortar and pestle sat on the counter of Rue’s Manhattan apartment and she often used it to grind spices. This is the perfect little practical memento for the fan who wants something they can actually use. In fact, after Rue suffered the stroke and was unable to swallow like she used to, her attendants ground up all her medications using this mortar and pestle and then mixed the powder into either vanilla ice cream or chocolate pudding, depending on what Rue had a hankering for at the moment. The bowl measures 6″ across and 3.5″ high, and the pestle is 5.75″ long and 1.5″ wide at its widest. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
