Hamilton Beach Electric Wall Mount Coffee Mill   This c.1915 coffee mill is a very hard to find example that is in pretty good condition.  It has the proper and operational cast iron speed control foot operated switch The cup may be a replacement, but as i have never seen another I can not really say.  The advertisement that I have seen for this grinder shows it without a lid, and I think we can safely assume that the one that is on it now was the last owners solution to the spiders and other critters of the night taking up residence after the lights were turned out.   Rare!!

The 
Star Mill Coffee GrinderThe Star Mill Coffee Grinder   This unusual Coffee Mill / Grinder, "The Star Mill",  is from Philadelphia and if far rarer than a comparable Enterprise coffee grinder.  It is the size of a #7 mill and is the type that would sit on the end of the counter in a large General Store back near the turn of the century  The condition of the paint on this grinder is wonderful, and the stars on the wheels are a great touch.  The wheels measure 22" and the internal mechanism is intact and operational.  The brass top hopper has some nickel loss and the lid needs to be soldered back on, but overall it still looks pretty good.  Mills this size that have not been restored and are this nice with their original paint are becoming ever more difficult to find.  In the right setting this will make a great addition to the decor or overall effect in that special setting.

Good + . . . . .$1295.00          SOLD!



Coles 
#2 Size Coffee MillColes #2 Size Coffee Mill  These #2 size coffee grinders by makers other than Enterprise and L. F. & C. are becoming very difficult to find.  This is a very early example and in all likelihood dates from the last quarter of the 1800s.  The paint is pretty good with some areas showing chipping and loses, but overall it is very nice.  The Coles name and the location of Phila. Pa. are cast into both of the wheels which measure 9 3/4" across.  The paint and gold highlighting on these are very good.  The decals are here, and may clean, but look worn.  The one apology is a small chip out of one corner on the original cast iron drawer.  The adjuster for determining the grind is present and operable.  The wooden base is original and very nice as well.  A nice example of a hard to find grinder

Good + . . . . $395.00         SOLD!



antique coffee grinder"New Model" Cast Iron Table Top Coffee Mill  The unusual grinder on the left is known as the New Model Grinder, and hails from Freeport Ill.  It is simple in design, and yet holds a fascination for us because of this simplicity.

Grand Union by Erie / Griswold Coffee MillGrand Union by Erie / Griswold Coffee Mill  This grinder is marked Grand Union, and was made by Erie.  It is more common than the Griswold version by far.     They are often damaged, but this one is nice noting that as usual the catch cup is missing..


Good + . . . . .$595.00          SOLD!





Erie 
 Lap Mill Style Cast Iron Coffee GrinderErie Lap Mill Style Cast Iron Coffee Grinder  The condition of the rare and desirable coffee mill is second to none.  In addition to the Erie cast into the lid, this one also has the name and location of a famous early Hardware company that was in Syracuse New York back during the late 19th century. That name was Hessler.  We have had and seen the Grand Union version of this grinder numerous times, and have owned the version marked Griswold a couple times, but this is the first time we have seen this variation, and have never seen a nicer condition example in any configuration.  A rare and desirable piece by any measure.

Good + . . . . .$1295.00         SOLD!


Golden Rule Coffee Mill / Grinder w/ Original Arcade Catch CupGolden Rule Coffee Mill / Grinder w/ Original Arcade Catch Cup  This Golden Rule wall mount advertising coffee Grinder is a nice looking mill.   The cup is a generic replacement.  There is a small crack in the top corner of the glass window.  It is above the window hole and from the outside looking in it is near invisible to see.  It can only bee seen when you look at it from the inside where it was taped.  It is otherwise very nice and damage free.  The wood board is nice, and the cast iron front with all the info cast into it is very nice.

Good + . . . . .$495.00             SOLD!





Arcade Deco Coffee MillArcade Model 1910 Deco Coffee Mill w/ Original Box & Instructions   This is just about the rarest of all coffee mills Arcade offered.  It was also the last wall mount model they offered.  It has a great Deco look to it, and this one is in super original condition.  The catch cup is right, the original rubber gasket is here, as are the original box, and instructions.   There are some very minor flakes on the top and bottom openings, but nothing serious.  A nice design and a super hard to find coffee mill that will fit right into that kitchen remodel you are doing.

Very Good . . . . . .$295.00          SOLD!

  




Vintage Cast Iron Top Lap Coffee MillVintage Cast Iron Top Wooden "Lap" / Coffee Mill   There are many different version of this style "lap" coffee mill.  Most are not marked as to name.  They could be used on the countertop, and that is where they display well, but they are known as lap mills as i imagine a lot of coffee was ground while the operator sat down with this in his lap.    Some had decals or paper labels that over the years fell off or were worn away.  I see no name on this one, or remnants of any labels.  It is a real and early one unlike some of the ones you can find today. 

It is well constructed and damage free. It does look to have been refinished at some point in time.

Good + . . . . .$95.00            SOLD!!

Davidson's 1886 Patent Coffee RoasterDavidson's 1886 Patent Coffee Roaster  This unusual coffee roaster was patented in 1886 by O. E. Davidson of Nashville Tenn.  It is a rare and near unique design.  Cranking the handle that is housed in cast iron handle that looks like a corn cob activates the cast iron gear, which engages the ring, which moves the articulated feet inside and the center blades to stir up the beans as they were roasting.  It is a very ingenious setup that looks like it would work well.  The patent can be viewed easily by putting the title into Google.  Beyond that there is little to no info on this rare piece of Kitchenalia / Americana.

The tin top, which resembles a Chinese hat is correct.  It does have some minor damage.  The main pan, the mechanism and its moving parts, including the ring are all cast iron and in nice undamaged condition.    Much rarer than the cannonball design roaster that you see offered once in a while.  Nice!!

Good + . . . . .$1195.00           SOLD!
