UNRESTORED. Sold as found. Clean enough that I think it could easily be used.
Massive coffee grinder, with a little history to it. This one was given (well sold to me by an old family friend who is in her 70s and was given this by her grandmother. It came over with them from England. Beatrice, from what I can tell was an early contemporary of Sprong (another big grinder seller c. 1850), and this coffee mill certainly dates from between 1852-1880 making it at least 135 years old and possibly as old as 200 years (based on the British registered design system which was updated in 1852). Personally from similar grinders sold at the time – specifically the Sprong I think this is probably c. 1840-1860.
This is a massive grinder – the largest size made at the time and it is designed to be wall or counter mounted. Mechanism turns smoothly and looks remarkably clean, adjusting mechanism moves freely. Hopper is enameled and has some spots where the enamel has worn away. Much of the original paint/japanning has worn away but you can still see traces of gilding on the front.
Marked: on the front “No. 4 Beatrice” on the front and “Rd No 537362 Made in England 4 A/1” on the back.
14” long (excluding the clamp screw which adds 3”) frame, 10” handle, 8” wide, depth (with handle) is about 10” 1/2
Unrestored. Sold as found.
