It is made of a pressed metal designed triangle and chute, grinder box with crank handle and maple finial handle. This coffee grinder is in its original condition. It is the original color with some rust present but it adds character.
It has not been painted. The hatch is intact and works easy.It works and you could use it to grind your favorite coffe. I think they would just put a pot underneath to collect the coffee. This would mount I would guess at the end of a counter on the side so below it drop into container. These were produced in the 19th century. The metal emboss and lettering is very good, weight with the board 3lbs 10oz.
