Enterprise 
#1 Coffee MillEnterprise #1 Coffee Mill  This model is often referred to as Enterprise's first model coffee mill.  It is marked  #1 in the casting below the hopper.  These early versions never had a lid for the hopper and there is no provision for one, and so this is correct as presented.   There is no casting damage, and the guts are present and operational.  The drawer front has been repainted, but the casting and overall condition is nice.  The black portions of the paint appear to have been enhanced  in some areas on this mill at some point, but there is lots of original paint left, and even some of the gold highlights and stripping on the base.

Good + . . . . . $295.00         SOLD!



Enterprise 
#3 Coffee Mill#3 Enterprise Coffee Mill  This very nice condition coffee mill was made by the most famous maker of cast iron grinders and other cast iron kitchenware, The Enterprise Manufacturing Co. of Philadelphia PA..  It is in very nice overall condition and is all original.  The paint is good+ and just slightly faded as is often found.  There are lots of decals remaining with good color. The wooden drawer with the #3 is proper and original right up to the mouse chew on the back wall.  Seems they like coffee as well.  We used this mill to grind our coffee for about a year.  It works fine and grinds it as fine as one could want.  I think though we are going to go back to the electric one from the appliance store.  The wood base is nice and has a great patina.  One size bigger than the #2 these mills stand 14" tall and the wheel diameter is 12

Good + . . . . . $995.00         SOLD!



Baby 
Enterprise #2 Coffee Mill / Grinder Baby Enterprise #2 Cast Iron  Coffee Mill / Grinder   This super original condition coffee grinder was made by the premier maker of such things, the Enterprise Manufacturing Co. of Philadelphia PA.  It is in very nice overall with bright colors and the paint being original, as are the decals.  The base and drawer are original and nice.  The decals on the body are original but somewhat worn and faded as can be expected.   There is a bit of coffee residue on the wheels and body as is often found, and we tend to leave them this way as it is true indication of the age and character of these fabulous devices from a time past.  You can buy #2 grinders pretty regularly, but not this earlier smaller size referred to as the "baby".  These models never had a top, and it is proper as shown.   This is an unusual opportunity to be able to buy one in this nice condition.  Very Nice!!

Good + . . . . . $1295.00         SOLD!



Enterprise # 2 1/2 Coffee MillEnterprise # 2 1/2 Coffee Mill  This #2 size coffee mill was made by the most famous maker of cast iron grinders and other cast iron kitchenware, The Enterprise Manufacturing Co. of Philadelphia PA.  It is in very nice overall condition and the paint is bright and decals are original and better than most.  The #2 1/2 mill was an upgrade over the standard #2 grinder with the nickel hopper being the main difference.  They are 10 times harder to find, and the hopper is usually either missing or damaged.

 Enterprise #2 Coffee Mill  This #2 size coffee mill was made by the most famous maker of cast iron grinders and other cast iron kitchenware, The Enterprise Manufacturing Co. of Philadelphia PA.  It is in very nice overall condition and the paint is bright and decals are original and better than most.  The base is a replacement that I refinished.  The paint is good+ and just slightly faded as is often found.  There are lots of decals remaining with good color.  A couple of them do show wear, but overall they are very nice.  The cast iron drawer with the porcelain knob is proper and original.  This mill works fine and grinds, but there is a slight wobble to one wheel.  There are no casting breaks or cracks in it, it is just a little off balance.  Number 2 mills stand just over 12 inches tall and have 9" wheels.

Enterprise #2 Coffee MillEnterprise #2 Coffee Mill  This #2 size coffee mill is the nicest i have ever owned.  It would get a 9 1/2 out of 10.  The decals were never touched or cleaned like you almost always see.   There are no casting breaks or cracks in it, it is just a little off balance.  Number 2 mills stand just over 12 inches tall and have 9" wheels.

Enterprise #2 Cast Iron  Coffee Mill / Grinder  This super original condition coffee grinder was made by the premier maker of such things, the Enterprise Manufacturing Co. of Philadelphia PA.  It is in super condition overall with the bright colors and all paint being original, as are the decals which are nicer than almost ever seen.  It appears to have been overcoated at one point with some sort of gloss, but this probably explains the exceptional condition, and is not a detraction or distraction.  The base and drawer are original and nice.  There is a small chip in the handle.  The decals on the body are original and as nice as one could want noting some small amount of fading.  There is a bit of coffee residue on the wheels and body as is often found, and we tend to leave them this way as it is true indication of the age and character of the fabulous devices from a time past.  You can buy these grinders pretty regularly, but not in this condition, and it is an unusual opportunity to be able to buy one in the nice condition.  Super!!

Enterprise #2 Coffee Mill / GrinderEnterprise #2 Coffee Mill / Grinder   This #2 size coffee mill was made by Enterprise Manufacturing Co. of Philadelphia PA the most famous maker of cast iron coffee mills / grinders and other cast iron kitchenware. Number 2 size coffee mills stand just over 12 inches tall and have 9" diameter wheels. They are the perfect size for display in the country kitchen or other settings.

The patent for this design was first issued in the early 1870's but these mills were made and offered into the 1920's or so.  This coffee mill was made into a lamp at one point.  It is in very nice overall condition showing minimal wear to the paint and decals.  It is not all faded or worn as many of these 100 year old grinders that were used a lot are.  The decals are original and better than most.  A couple of them do show wear, but overall they are very nice.  The eagle on the top is a replacement to cover the hole from when it was a lamp. The internal grinding plates are present and it works just fine.  The cast iron drawer with the porcelain knob is proper and original but has a hole drilled in the bottom, again from when it was a lamp.  There are no other holes or modifications from when it was a lamp.    Nice!!

Enterprise #9 Coffee Mill / GrindeEnterprise #9 Coffee Mill / Grinder   This is a nice looking #9 size Enterprise Coffee Mill.  It has 20" dia wheels.  The wooden drawer is proper and nice.  The decals are in very nice condition.  The orange / red paint is in excellent condition.  There is one apology in that the top hopper has a tight hairline crack that runs from the top down about 2"  It is hardly noticeable and not in danger of going anywhere.  It looks like it could almpst be a factory flaw.  A great display piece for the country / general store look.   Nice!!

Good + . . . . .  $1250.00    SOLD!
