This is a great old Turkish peppercorn / coffee grinder completely hand crafted and hand decorated in solid antique brass. This grinder is circa late 1800's-early 1900's. It could also be used to grind up other beans and spices. It is made of solid brass with stamping and hallmarks. This old pepper mill is a very well made, substantial one.It measures 13" High with a circumference of 6 6/8". The pepper grinder is in 2 parts.
The top part grinds the peppercorns and the bottom catches the ground pepper to be used when you like. The crank handle comes off and folds for storing inside when traveling as was necessary when this old mill was made. The top PART IS CORRODED TIGHT SO TOP DOES NOT COME OFF, HANDLE CRANK DOES AND BOTTOM CATCH PART DOES, SHOWS USE WITH DENTS AND SCRAPES. This old pepper mill looks great on display in a cook's kitchen. It is in wonderful condition.
There are dings, NO cracks, or repairs I CAN SEE. I would use this great looking cooking accessory as decor in a kitchen.The brass has nice stamping / chasing all around. There are three brass grip knobs to hold when opening the grinder up. The handle looks like hammered bronze with old hardware with a brass knob. This mill is stamped at the top of the bottom piece with 2 crescents with arabic writing inside. In between the crescents is the #3. Below the #3 stamp is a word that looks like GARANTI.
The top and bottom rims have ridging. It is a wonderful cooking antique. This would make a wonderful addition to a brass collection and be an outstanding, unusual gift for the cook in your life.
