My brother-in-law Bob gave me this old grinder that belonged to his great grandmother. He said I would appreciate it (and he's right!)
It is made in Germany, probably fairly old since it belonged to his great grandmother (his mom is in her late 80's.)
KYM is the marking under the little removeable glass measuring piece, and Stahlmahlwerk is part of the description on the back.
My favourite part is the chippy blue wooden handle and the matching blue wood lid. I often see vintage green and red handled utensils, and own some green and red handled rolling pins, but this is the first time I have seen blue paint used. Blue makes me very happy.
Just look at the chippiness! Sigh!
The backing is white painted wood, the grinder is metal, the handle tip and lid are painted wood, the upper portion is ceramic and the measuring cup is glass.
My BIL used it to grind spices for his homemade jerky, but I'm thinking of mounting it on our kitchen wall. Have you ever seen a grinder like this before?
