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.
Circa eighteenth century.
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.
Nails, screws and bracket attaching tin reservoir to wood..
HR(?) mark on arm; EP carved on side; 19462 and some pencil markings on bottom.
This is from an antiques collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. ebay SHOP VAJJL00 LBJJX4/11 SLAEJX8/14 psLAFJX07/17 SeVBJEX03/19
6 (Fine+): The grinder has some moderate rust and tarnish, and one side of the inlaid rectangle is missing along with about a third of the drawer pull.
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
