It is operative and working. It has not been used for a long time therefore it doesn't hold any coffee nor spice scent. Its inner drawer has been repaired but her outside parts are original. The key knob is functional and upon turning can lock the drawer in. This pretty piece can hold some secret treasures in!
Visible signs of wear & tear. Scratches around the key knob of the drawer.
The inside metal parts that do the grinding are rusty.
2 of the 3 nails holding the upper brass part to the wooden box appear to be changed, one of them not smoothly.
It doesn't show any branding, but it is very similar to old German Pe De brand mills from early 1800's Biedermeier era until the 1920’s made in Germany and France, featuring the unique full external hopper.
