ARTIFACT: This is an eighteenth century spice grinder from New England that has a maker's mark on the arm. The grinder has a bowl-shaped reservoir at the top where the grinding arm is and a drawer to pull out the pulverized contents beneath. The top platform and the base both have a beveled edge and the drawer has a simple inlaid rectangle as decoration. The square base has a semi-circle protrusion on two sides, presumably as a place to put a securing hand while the other one turns the arm.

VINTAGE: Circa eighteenth century.

SIZE: Approximately 6-5/8" in height and 7-3/4" in width and 5-3/4" in depth.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Wood, iron, tin, wooden handle end.

ATTACHMENT: Nails, screws and bracket attaching tin reservoir to wood..

MARKINGS: HR(?) mark on arm; EP carved on side; 19462 and some pencil markings on bottom.
