Another French Treasure {Antique French Coffee Grinder}

It is no secret ..


While in France during our fabulous “tour and buying trip” . .

~ ~ I found a great antique French coffee grinder in a quaint shop in Honfleur.

I was drawn to it as it was a beautiful blue . .

~ ~ I have never seen one in blue before.

Well that may be because . . .

~ ~ the lovely shopkeeper told me that the color blue on these grinders are uncommon.

Hmmm. . . loved it even more!

My sister, Betty Ann loves antiques and all things French Country.

Prior to leaving for France, it was my sister’s birthday . .

~ ~ and did not get a chance to send her a gift.


Note: Batteries, breadboard, and tea towel not included. 🙂

Have a wonderful day!!

  24. what a nice gift for BettyAnn. Wow, it’s really a great find. Does it really work?

  25. I bought a coffee grinder very similar to yours several years ago in Italy. It was red, and one of my daughters decided it would be perfect in her kitchen. Hmmm, now that I think of it I haven’t seen it in a while. Hope she still has it and I can reclaim it.
