Up for offers is this cute, antique wooden nutmeg grinder in very good condition. It's right out of an old estate and still has a great aroma inside despite not having been used in quite some time. This grinder is all original with a old patina with rich coloring and a folksy-looking style. While it shows age and wear, it's very rugged and solid, and of course, still in useable condition. Cute and full of old world charm, this kitchen tool is about 4 5/8 inches high with a bottom diameter of just about 1 5/8 inches, although its widest point is about 2 inches in diameter.
This piece has three sections, a pestle, the mortar-like midsection, and a bottom recepticle. Both the bottom of the pestle and mortar sections are fitted with punched tin pieces that grind up the spices when they are brought together and turned. The bottom section acts as a collection bin for the freshly ground nutmeg, pepper, etc. This piece screws on and off thanks to a primitively carved, fitted notch. This is truly a scarce, antique kitchen impliment that displays nicely on a shelf, antique cupboard or among other antique treenware. It sells to the highest buyer without reserve. Good luck!
