A very unusual antique Coffee Grinder or Mill. The Coffee Grinder is made of heavy bronze or brass and all four corners are decorated with Sphinx. A Sphinx is a Mythological Greek creature with the body of a lion, the breast and head of a woman and eagle's wings. This fine Coffee Grinder is not marked but is certainly European in origin. Overall dimensions are 10 3/4" high x 5 1/2" square at the base, it is very heavy. The Coffee Grinder is in very good overall condition. It was polished at some point and there is some silver or nickel plate and tarnish under the turning cap where you put the coffee beans, see photos. I don't know if it will actually grind coffee beans, I don't have any to try it. The Coffee Grinder would make a wonderful addition to an early kitchen collection, it is rare and wonderful.
