This is a beautiful victorian coffee grinder that still bears its original label. It dates it to the 1890's. Fabulous all cast iron top (many have wood and cast iron) with original wooden knobbed handle and original wooden drawer. Nice visible dove-tail construction. It is in very good condition considering its age and the grinding mechanism still works! The only visible flaws on this piece are a split in the drawer (due to age) and a small broken piece off the back of the base. These vintage arcade model no.705 grinders sell usually from between $125-$165. They were well made and the entire top and mechanisms are cast iron. I am pricing this piece at $85. It is an excellent piece and the imperfections are common for a utilitarian item of this age and will not show when displayed. Really beautiful piece for a coffee lover or vintage kitchen collector.
