Coffee Grinder - Landers, Frary & Clark, circa 1905 Object Reg. No: SH 000839

Metal coffee grinder, manufactured by Landers, Frary and Clark, New Britain, Connecticut, USA, circa 1905. It was brought to Australia by Vincenzo Candela and his wife Emanuela Nigro, when they migrated in 1920. The Candelas made much of their own food including homemade pasta, tomato sauce, wine, sausages and they roasted their own coffee. Items that could not be purchased in Australia were often ordered by mail from the Italian manufacturer. This was a practice common in both Italy and Australia. Vincenzo also received catalogues from Italy after his migration to Australia.
Metal coffee grinder, with wide funnel, to circular blade, turned by long metal leaver with a wooden handle. There is a G clamp to attach it to a bench.
