Box-like compartment holds the measure to catch coffee grounds. Top resembles an upside down bell which would hold coffee beans. Lid on top slides with white porcelain-like knob to be used as handle; wheels have a bar joining them, which go through an egg shaped mechanism from which the actual grinding process is done. Hinge on backside. On four sides of the grinding compartment is an illustration of a man and woman wearing 19th century clothing.
Commentaires : This coffee mill was once used in Hickman's Store, one of several mercantile operations in Dorchester during the mid to late 1800's. At that time, Dorchester was the center of commerce, justice, and enterprise in Westmorland County. The Hickman family were major shipbuilders as well as being involved in other areas such as trade and law.
Fonctions : Store and home grinders replaced "roasteries" as the only places where coffee beans could be ground, making it possible for housewives to prepare freshly ground and brewed coffee in the home. These grinders also ensured that no foreign matter was introduced into the coffee.
