Old Authentic Yokuts Native American Central California Indian stone mortar and pestle. This set comes from the collection of my husband, who has been collecting for over 50 years. The Mortar & Pestle are from Merced County, in the California central valley. Measures about 7-1/2″ to 8″ at highest point and about 10 wide. Nice deep hole about 6 deep. There is calcification inside the bowl from ancient food stuff. The bowl has plow marks as shown. There is an old chip, the edge has been worked in that area, and the bowl was used long after chipped. In this same area (see photos) it looks like there is a crack, but it doesn’t go through to the inside. The bowl weighs 24lbs 4oz on my postal scale. Pestle, heavy, dense stone, possibly slate.
