|Kenrick Coffee Mill ca 1850|
It's an octagonal Kenrick coffee mill from England and the mark on the bottom reads "A K & Sons"
It measures 15 cm high and just over 12 cm in diameter.
The best date I can give it is circa 1850. The Kenrick firm was founded by Archibald Kenrick in 1791, in Spon Lane, West Bromwich.
I bought this in 2004 and had it shipped from England. Don't ask what the shipping costs were. Did I mention it is cast iron? And that means heavy....
It's very decorative but I didn't take the best picture so you can't really see the design work. The book you see is the book I use to help identify my coffee mills at auctions (before I bid!) I recommend it so if you want to buy it, just click on the title Antique Coffee Grinders: American, English, And European (Schiffer Book for Collectors)
