Antique Primitive Wooden Nutmeg Grinder with Old Folk Paint! Vintage Country Spice Mill


Here's a charming, antique, wooden nutmeg grinder in very good condition. As-found and right out of an old house, it has fabulous, old, floral folk paint! Loaded with character, this old, 3-piece, kitchen tool
is a scarce item not often found anymore. It looks and works similar to a mortar and pestle but the top piece and center section have punched tin for grinding nutmeg and other spices which end up in the bottom section. This grinder has a beautiful, original patina that shows age Andy wear from use over the last century. It still has a pleasant aroma inside! There are no cracks or pieces missing; it stands About 5 1/2" high. This is a beautiful piece of old, turned, treenware that is well-preserved and quite collectible, not to mention still functional!
