This is a lovely cast iron and brass Victorian Coffee Mill by Archibald Kenrick & Sons of Staffordshire. It is the No. 2 version (stamped on the top and underside) with an oval pressed brass nameplate on the front.
A good looking piece of Victorian Kitchenalia that can still be used for grinding coffee beans or just used as a decorative item instead. There is significant paint loss to the mill but it has has been disassembled, cleaned, re-assembled and is in working condition. There are holes on either side for attaching it to a work surface or a reasonably hefty board. The grind size can be adjusted by turning the regulator screw (after removing the drawer and using a screw driver from the underside).
The Archibald Kenrick & Sons Company was established in 1791 in Spons Lane, West Bromwich as a quality iron foundry. At the company‘s height in around 1914 it employed almost 1,200 people and although the company was taken over in 1994 it is still trading today.
