A really nice small coffee grinder made by Peugeot et Frere. This model is called Diabolo and was produced during the 1952 - 1956 period. Because this model was produced over such a short period of time, they are rare to find. This grinder has professionally been repaint in ivory, which was one if its original color.
Its small size allowed people to use when traveling during vacation or work. Because it is all metal it is rather solid. This coffee mill can also be used as pepper mill.
♥ Working condition ♥
This coffee grinder is very good vintage and in working condition. You can choose your type of grinding: from fine to coarse through the little knob sitting under the burr. This model has the burr mechanism welded to the body of the mill, so it is not possible to disassemble the mill to fully clean it. Because of this, there is some rust inside the cup and a little bit on the burr itself. This could come out with regular use. Still, please keep in mind that this grinder is over 60 years old, so it will probably not perform as perfectly as a new modern version.
♥ Noticeable cosmetic issues ♥
No issues. Everything is original including the logo. There is a stain of paint inside the cup as seen on picture 4. Please note that all metal Peugeot models have a tight adjustment of the lower recipient making them hard sometime to open. Click on Zoom for larger pictures.
