A big ending for an early Dansk mill auction on eBay yesterday. The mill pictured below sold for $340. It is a rare early pepper mill (no salt shaker) in great condition. The mill is very nice. It is old and thus not common, but I wouldn’t say it is one of the super rare designs, as it shows up on eBay every few months. It was found by the seller in the East Village in NYC – quite a score! I helped the seller authenticate it, which I am pleased to do for anyone.
As is usually the case with a big auction like this, another one popped up the next day. The second one looks like it needs a good cleaning, but it is in very good condition and has an unusual grinding mechanism that says “Made in France” on the bridge (pictured below).
