This just has the Victorian look everyone is after. Very nice condition for its age. Metal Grinder Portion, Handle & Top Glass Crystal Canister are original, but metal lid is likely a replacement as it is unmarked, but fits very well. It also fits very well.There is some paint loss and mild rust in a few areas. The lower spring mechanism works well. (Mounting board in pictures not included, we just hung grinder for photographing). The Crystal Glass top has all the old glass look, bubbles and some production blips. One area almost looks like a crack, but is not, just a variation in the glass.
I tried to catch it in the next to last picture in gallery. Please look over all the pictures taken for your consideration and let us know if you have questions. This one is marked MADE IN USA and has a #3 stamped on the back. We estimated date of production as we could not find an exact date these were made.The website says Arcade began making Coffee grinders in 1897, but did not show which and when exactly. Note: For anyone wanting to use this item beyond a display, please Google "Arcade Crystal Coffee Grinder #3" and watch the 14 minute video that shows how to use, adjust and clean the grinder. We tested item and it worked and then we emptied old beans out. You may wish to clean before use, as we did not clean other than emptying beans.
