Vintage Handmade Moroccan Coffee Grinder - Silver & Brass Repousse, Ebony Wood

About

This vintage coffee grinder is made of ebony wood, with hand-engraved silver melange and brass adornment, hand carved camel bone embellishments, and a handhewn grinding mechanism. Entirely handmade, this grinder was used by southern Morocco nomads while traveling and crossing the Sahara desert. We sourced the item from Zagora, Morocco, where the item has been handed down through generations. The top of the grinder has additional repousse brass and silver melange, and braided and decorative embellishments can be found on all sides. One side of the lid opens. The handle turns easily and has been decorated with brass and silver melange. The lower drawer is removable, and has two small metal accents. Removing the draw allows for viewing the grinding mechanism, which is entirely forged by hand. The grinder body sits on a pedestal of silver melange and brass repousse that is somewhat malleable to achieve perfect balance. This objet d'art is entirely handmade by native Moroccan Berber artisans. It is late 20th century, but uses re-purposed wood that gives it an antique appearance.
