"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."

No Idea on this glass mortar and pestle type thing

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

Dianne recommended you for a new TV show that we are casting at Pilgrim Films & TV.  Please see the info about the show below.

PRODUCERS OF DIRTY JOBS SEEKING INNOVATIVE JACKS-OF-ALL-TRADES FOR THEIR OWN TV SHOW

Are you innovative, adaptable and competitive? Are you the type of person who can do any odd job and succeed at it? If you answered yes, then the producers of Dirty Jobs want you to be part of their new TV show for a major cable network.

This new show will feature a cast of outgoing, hard-working Americans challenged to hunt, catch, collect, build, buy, barter and sell in each exciting episode. We're looking for men and women who are inventive, adventurous and confident that they can do any job we throw at them BETTER than anyone else. Whether we put you in the city or on a farm, you have the skills and smarts to do anything.

This is a paid position for teams of TWO.

Maybe it's you and your business partner or you and a fellow collector, inventor, investigator, hunter, entrepreneur or freelance ANYTHING!

If you think that the two of you would be fun to watch on TV, then you could be traveling across America, tackling a string of exciting jobs in every episode of your own show.

To apply, email JackofalltradesCasting@gmail.com with your name, the name of your partner, recent photos of you both, your phone numbers and a brief explanation of why you need to be featured on this show.

APPLY TODAY!

Deadline for submissions is February 24th, 2012. Must be at least 21 years old and an American resident or citizen. For more information, visit www.pilgrimstudios.com/casting/jackofalltrades

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.

Robert, what a nice collection of pottery you have.  I enjoy looking at pottery, but I'm in to colored glass, BIG TIME.  Oh, yes, thrift stores are great places to find our treasures.
