E18156

A fantastic collection of 15 French glass storage jars. These were originally made for a shop display and probably date from the 1920's. They are quite difficult to date acurately as we have never come across anything like them before. In effect they are upside down storage jars with corks in the openings in the bases. No two are exactly the same size and they are all hand blown. They range in size from the tallest, which is 33cm. (13in) high by 6.5cm. (2 1/2in) diameter, down to the smallest which is 13cm. (5 1/8in) high by 5cm. (2in) diameter. There is a very small chip on the foot of one of the jars but other than that they are all in excellent condition. Some have old labels, which are now very faded, which include 'Poivre' and 'Cannelle'. These could be original to the jars. The shapes of the jars are very decorative and these would now made a superb feature in a large kitchen. £950.

E18153

A rare, small, 19th century, French, cast iron coffee mill. This piece was made by Peugeot brothers, the same company who now make cars. They started a foundry in the early 1800's making pepper and coffee mills and then turned to making cars in the late 19th century. This piece is marked, in the casting 'PEUGEOT FRERES BREVETES S.C.D.G.' and it dates from c.1880. It is also marked with a number '00' and the letter 'A'. The double 00 was the smallest size that Peugeot made and it is quite hard to find. The main body of the piece is cast iron, the cover, which slides open to take the coffee beans, is brass and the draw which contains the coffee after grinding is wooden. The interior of the mill is enamelled. The overall effect is very decorative as well as being practical. This example has been overhauled and is in very good condition, so it could still be used. There is a small split in the wooden handle.
Dimensions: Height 25.5cm. (10in) Width 25cm. (9 7/8in) Depth 15.5cm. (6 1/8in).

A good example of a 19th century, French, cast iron coffee mill. This piece was made by Peugeot brothers, the same company who now make cars. They started a foundry in the early 1800's making pepper and coffee mills and then turned to making cars in the late 19th century. This piece is marked, in the casting 'PEUGEOT FRERES BREVETES S.C.D.G.' and it dates from c.1880. It is also marked with a number '0' and the letter 'A'. The main body of the piece is cast iron, the cover, which slides open to take the coffee beans, is brass and the draw which contains the coffee after grinding is wooden. The overall effect is very decorative as well as being practical. This example has been overhauled and is in very good condition, so it could still be used. There is a burn on the handle and a couple of worm holes in the wooden draw.

E17994

A large, and very unusual, cast iron coffee mill. This piece is made by Peugeot but it is quite different to the majority of mills produced by them and it is a very early example, dating from c.1850. It is marked, in the casting, 'PEUGEOT FRERES BREVETES S.G.D.G'. This is the same company who now make cars. They started making coffee mills in about 1850 and this form would be the earliest style of production. The body is made from cast iron but it all dismantles very easily so it can be cleaned out inside. This can be seen in the various images. The top container, for the coffee beans, is made from brass. This is a replacement, which has been spun as an exact replica of the original. There is a wooden draw to catch the ground beans and the whole thing is mounted on a wooden block. It has 1 fault, that is 1 pin retaining lug has broken, and the top section is missing. (This can be seen in the images.) However this fault does not affect its useability and otherwise is in very good condition.
Dimensions: Height 48.5cm. (19 1/8in) Width 38cm. (15in) Depth 19.5cm. (7 3/4in).

E18119 A steel and brass felt or lace iron with a turned wooden handle. This example is in the shape of a leaf and dates from c.1920. It is marked, on the side of the steel leaf form 'A PERRES'. These irons were used for making felt or lace decorations for hats. The fabric was starched and placed over the brass section. The steel section was heated and then pressed into the brass section and the fabric would then be trimmed, forming the leaf shape. The iron is well made and the design is very well detailed. It is in very good condition.
Overall dimensions when the two parts are together: Length 19.6cm. (7 3/4in) Height 3.2cm. (1 1/4in) Width 3.8cm. (1 1/2in).

E17911 An interesting group of seventeen, 19th century, copper printing blocks. These were used for the printing of a book about lace as each one portrays something lace related. Most are lace designs, either borders, collars, or more elaborate panels, and the others show lacemakers at work. The largest is a panel which is made up of tiny human and animal figures, in minute detail, and another of the larger examples is a very fine heraldic crest. They would date from the latter quarter of the 19th century. Each one comprises a thin copper plate attached to an oak block and the copper plates are exceptionally finely detailed. You can see this if you look through the other images. As a group they make a very interesting display. The sizes of the blocks range from the smallest, which is 4.5cm. (1 3/4in) long by 2cm. (3/4in) wide to the largest which is 10cm. (4in) long by 7.5cm. (3in) wide. Each one is 2.5cm. (1in) deep. They are all in excellent condition.

The steel handles have engraved geometric designs and they are also inlaid with brass. The cutter has two stylised birds to the top and the blade is also engraved with geometric designs. The piece is in excellent condition. Although known as betel nut cutters they were actually for cutting the areca nut. This was chewed with betel leaf for their effect as a mild stimulant. £225.
