North Carolina Mortar And Pestle One Of A Kind Rarest Indian Artifact Ever
This artifact is from Orange County, North Carolina. It is a mortar and pestle that was put into a tree stump by the Indians and was left just as you see it here. Originally it was owned by the Walker family, found many generations ago and it has been in my family for the last 38 years. The tree stump was carved and socketed to fit the mill-stone, or mortar, inside the pocket as you can see in the pictures. The pestle was lying inside the mortar stone when it was found, and it is the exact same material as the mortar, except it has a black colored band in the middle as you can see. This stump was cut down ages ago by someone in the Walker family when they started their homestead in Orange County, North Carolina, and then put inside the home as a decorative piece.
This is why it is preserved in the state that it is today. The stump also shows evidence of drilling or boring of a hole and it was pegged. For what reason we can only speculate. If you are looking for that perfect one-of-a-kind piece to go in your relic room, look no further.
I would be happy to entertain any questions about this piece that you may have.
