Bought this at auction. Was told that it is a poppy seed grinder. It is small, about 8 inches tall. It is marked Germany and t is a label that says zassenhaus. I don't think it was ever used.Most of the items I sell are from Estate Sales. Some of the items are mine and I no longer want or need them. I am not an expert or a collector. I describe the items to the best of my knowledge. I check everything before I list it. I look for nicks, cracks, tears, dents etc. and try to describe them in my description. All of my items are sold as is, so be sure you know what you are bidding on before you bid. If I misrepresent something I will refund your money, but you are responsible for shipping. If multiple items are bought I will do my best to adjust the shipping charges. Breakable items should be insured. I am not responsible for items broken in shipping. I accept Paypal, money orders, or certified checks. I DO NOT accept PERSONAL CHECKS. Prompt payment is appreciated. If payment is not received within 7 days item will be relisted and negative feedback given. Thank you and please check my other listing and check back often.
