"That is a crock that was made by Alexander Buchan. In 1882 the name was changed from Murray and Buchan to A W Buchan & Co. The crock probably held Scotch whiskey since that is what Arthur Bell produced.
"I'm juat wondering how come I can't find a comparison. My first thought was the same (glass and matching muddler) but there should be another example of this somewhere, you would think, no? Probably need some exact key word to find it…"
"The glass is about 3 inches tall by about 4 inches wide. The pestle does fit inside the glass and is a couple inches taller. It is glass not crystal. Whatever it was used to smash (if that is even what it is for), it has to be soft because it's…"
"Does the pestle fit inside the mortar? Pictures make it look too big...
Maybe the pestle isn't a pestle, but rather a knife rest?
I wouldn't want to use it for foodstuff. Ground glass or crystal aint no good for digestion."
Hello all, it's been a while. I'm posting this for a friend because it has me stumped. I cannot find another example of this object anywhere. It has pat. pending embossed on the side. Kind of a cross between a muddler on steroids and some weird kind of mortar and pestle. Anybody seen anything like it before.See More
"Thanks, your correct Craig, it's a blade balancer for lawn mower blades. When I said it may be easy for some, I figured it would be easier for anyone who cuts their own grass. Now that was quicker than I anticipated. On with the blue…"

Thanks for the friend request. I have the Basic membership with Worthpoint, which costs $9.99 per month. That gives me 25 items that I can look up the price each month. They have two higher levels after that - $24.99 for 75 items and then $49.99 for unlimited. 25 a month is plenty for me so far. I've found it useful. The majority of items on their site come from eBay, but there are other sites they have also - like some store listings and auctions. Hope that helps.
