Antique Wood & Cast Iron Manual Coffee Spice Mill Grinder Repaired & Refinished
Description: A very nice-looking antique coffee or spice mill or grinder. The mill has a wooden constructed bottom and a cast iron hopper with a cast iron crank and grinding mechanism. The crank has a wooden knob at the end for comfort while grinding. The wooden base is of dove tail construction with the bottom and top being nailed to it. It has a drawer of nail construction and is equipped with a wooden knob held to the front with a screw. The mill has obviously been repaired as evidenced by some new nails and wood filling in a small spot on the base and has been stripped and refinished.
