Vintage Enterprise Mfg. Co. No 2 Cast Iron Coffee Grinder ~ Patent Date 1873 :
Offering this early cast iron Enterprise Mfg.
Co. coffee grinder No. 2 dated from 1873. Standing just about 10 ½” tall this
very collectable mill is about as complete and as solid as you could ever hope
to find. After very close inspection I can find no cracks in the casting
anywhere. I am no expert but everything here looks original to the machine
including the top, wood handle, inner grinding mechanism and porcelain knobs.
The outside painted surface is chipped and worn off in several different areas,
it sure looks to be the original paint. There are a few decals here and there
but they are very difficult to see. The top’s hinge pin is loose and there is
some up and down wiggle here, there is also some side to side movement in the
wood handle. Nothing here is terrible but it is old and has seen use. An
interesting observation is the patent date of Dec. 9, 1873 on both of the fly
wheels and the base has a patent date of what looks like Oct. 2/73, the base
markings are difficult to make out. Right out of an advanced collector’s estate
and offered with , have some fun with this blazer.
