A cast bronze beaker-shaped mortar with a flared mouth and wide rim. Four vertical ribs on the body terminate at the base with paw-like feet. The square-shaped handle is applied to the body.
Urdang attributes this mortar to the late 15th century Germany. In the catalogue he writes, "The tall slender form and the lion paws ...are characteristic for this period of German Gothic mortars."
