Antique Landers Frary & Clark No. 24 Coffee Grinder

Item Number: KTE542778
Price: $99.99

This No. 24 coffee grinder was manufactured in New Britain CT by Landers, Frary & Clark. It has the patent information on the back as well as "Patent Pending" on the back lip of the jar screw top. It has been called "one of the best wall mills ever made" by Joseph MacMillian who wrote a book on antique coffee mills (The MacMillan Index of Antique Coffee Mills).

This coffee mill will accept any Mason jar as the coffee hopper, and we have provided an additional antique feel to this item by including a blue glass Atlas Mason jar as the coffee hopper. Also included is a rubber gasket to keep the jar from chipping as it is screwed into the mill. This coffee grinder has been disassembled and thoroughly cleaned and is in perfect working order and is ready to hang on your wall and use right away.

This item is in great condition with an amazing amount of its original finish intact. There is some surface wear, however you'll find it adds character to the grinder and is not corrosion or rust. No other repairs were required as it was in great working order when we found it.

This item will make a wonderful addition in your kitchen whether you intend to use it to grind your coffee or to use as a wall decoration. These grinders are not easy to find and typically cost much more money on collector sites.

Since we do not have the original glass hopper that came with this grinder, we are including a Great Depression Era Atlas "Strong Shoulder" Mason jar. The Atlas jars were made by that company between 1902-1940 and were in competition with Ball and Kerr. The Atlas jars had a "Strong Shoulder" design, which is thicker glass at the top to prevent cracking. This makes it an ideal replacement for the original missing bean hopper.

The jar itself has a story, as does this unique grinder!
