ANTIQUE PEUGEOT FRERES COFFEE MILL/GRINDER SHEET METAL/TIN FRANCE c1890-1900
BE SURE TO SCROLL DOWN INTO THE DESCRIPTION AND LOOK ABOVE AND BELOW FOR MORE PHOTOS For your viewing is this wonderful antique Peugeot Freres table top coffee mill-made of sheet metal/tin, and painted in a dark rich red. Both sides and back have a flower motif trimmed in gold paint. On the front, trimmed in gold is a Dutch winter scene with barn, windmill, and children playing. The coffee drawer is made of wood with a tin front decorated with painted leaves, and has a wooden drawer pull. On top of the mill where you open the hopper and pour in the coffee beans is also decorated with painted flowers, but to use the mill you have to hold down the mill with one hand while cranking with the other, so the paint is worn and the flowers do not show as much due to wear. The mechanism works well and has been tested and makes good ground coffee, no splits in the wood handle or drawer pull, hopper and drawer open and close well, no cracks or damage to the coffee grinder.
Overall, in excellent condition, attractive, nice patina, wear is commensurate with age and use. It certainly is a clean, solid and quality manufactured product. The mill can be used as I have, or would make a great and colorful antique display piece for any kitchen décor. BE SURE TO SCROLL DOWN INTO THE DESCRIPTION AND LOOK ABOVE AND BELOW FOR MORE PHOTOS.
