RARE Granite Millstone Base Stone

Recovered from a Glastonbury, Connecticut mill site some 40+ years ago. This was the base stone for use in conjunction with tapered edge millstones which ran vertically in a circle on top of this portion. We have several tapered edge millstones listed on this site (Early granite millstones labeled A, B, C and D). I believe that “A” or “B” are the probable mates to this base stone. This artifact is SUBSTANTIAL, measuring 6’-3” x 6’-3” x 15” thick. Weighs 7,700 pounds. I have only seen this particular item in Pennsylvania in the 40+ years of my pursuits. The edges are not damaged but were cut like that to screed off the milled product.
