    I would like some help dating this item. My grandmother was a coffee lover. She ordered a lot of coffee and I was told that this mill was sent to her as appreciation for being a loyal costumer.

    The mill has seen better days: has a dent or two and needs a good cleaning but it is in perfect working condition.

    Thanks for looking:)

      This looks like a Turkish coffee mill for grinding coffee to a powder.
      Maybe see if that helps identify the maker?

      What a lesson in history, Riply206! Thanks so much for your inside into the business practices and history of the Eduscho company.
      My grandmother lived in the Russian controlled zone that became the German Democratic Republic, also commonly known as East Germany, in 1949. I am not sure how long the two Germanys had business relations after the official split allowing private citizens to order from the West and paying with currency of the East, but I would guess that it stopped not too long after. For that reason I would also think that the mill might have been made in the late forties to early fifties.
      My grandmother was very, very old and for that reason, the mill could have been also from the time before the second WW. During the twenties and thirties, she ordered a lot of books and other items by mail, but I still think that your estimate is most likely correct.
      The inscription reads: Eduscho schafft zu jeder Zeit Behagen und Gemuetlichkeit

      Hi freiheit I have never seen this brand before but then again there is a lot of things that I have never heard of. What a wonderful thing for this company to do it is not something you often here of. Maybe more company's should try doing this it makes great public relations.
