Newer (and maybe even an electric) Coffee Grinders or Mills


Reproduction of a Spong No. 2 Coffee Grinder or Mill

This is a reproduction of a Spong coffee grinder or mill. I am guessing it was made around the 60's or 70's most likely in China. Spong & Co., was founded in England in 1856 and the style of their grinders stayed the same as long as they made them. This grinder was barely used if at all. All surface rust was wire brushed from the interior grinding mechanism and the outside was thoroughly cleaned. This weighs right around 5 1/2 pounds.

Item No. 4050


Wrightsville Hardware Colonial Coffee Grinder or Mill No. 1707


This mill was most likely made right around the 1960's. It was produced by the Wrightsville Hardware Co. which had purchased Logan and Strobridge in 1906. They continued to produce  L&S mills under their name after they purchased the company. It was used very little and retains it's original label. This was stained at some time in it's life and was originally much lighter colored wood. It was cleaned inside and out.

Item No. 4077



Wrightsville Hardware American Coffee Grinder or Mill No. 14

This is another Wrightsville Hardware grinder in an open hopper design. After Wrightsville purchased Logan and Strobridge they continued to produce the same mills that L&S had manufactured prior to the purchase so the design of these mills remained basically the same since before the turn of the last century

Item No. 4078



Wrightsville Hardware Co. Brighton Side Coffee Grinder or Mill No. 32-000

This is a Wrightsville Hardware side coffee mill that most  likely dates to right around the 1960's. It has it's original finish and doesn't appear to have been used much if at all. The grind is adjusted with the wing nut which is attached to the back of the grinding cone. The interior grinding mechanism was wire brushed to remove some light surface rust and the exterior was cleaned so it's ready to be used.

Item No. 3994



Wrightsville Hardware Co. American Beauty Coffee Grinder or Mill


This is a copy of an older tin hopper wall mount coffee mill of the same name that was first produced by `Logan & Strobridge. The body is made of cast iron and the hopper is made of a sheet metal. It originally came with a red tin cup but this one came to me with the old tin cup shown which fits and works well and most  likely dates to before the grinder (1960's). The hopper of this mill has some scratches in  the paint and was originally red but the color has faded by being exposed to the sun over the years. It has been cleaned and is ready to be used.

Item No. 4048



Advertising and Ephemera

Reproduction Old Reliable Coffee Advertising Sign

This is a new/unused metal reproduction of a 1930's Old Reliable Coffee advertising sign showing the trademark old man with his pipe along with a one pound bag of their coffee and the slogan "Always the same" "Always good". I was told these were made during the 1970's and are no longer being produced.


Original Old Reliable Coffee Advertising Sign

These are new old stock advertising signs for Old Reliable Coffee. I purchased these from a man in Ohio who found these in a basement where his grandfather who had been a salesman for Old Reliable had left them many years ago. These are made of a heavy duty waxed cardboard material and look very nice framed. I have about 10 of these and the picture is representative of the bunch with some having minor rub-wear.  12 x 10"

I'll pick the best one out of the bunch until they're gone and send you a picture of it for your approval before mailing.
