French Coffee grinder MOULUX made during the period 1950/1956
Made of cast aluminium, this product, precursor to the industrial style was too expensive and pouted by the most part of buyers prefering the new Peugeot products said « moderne » in lacquered or inox steel.
For this reason the Moulux is rare presently.
Solid and strong the dimensions are :
Total height with crunk 19,5 cm / 7,5 inches Box: 13 x 13 x 16,5 cm / 5 x 5 x 6,5 inches.
The weakness of this grinder is the drawer wich have the corners often broken. This one is intact.
Fyi, 2 grinders of this type were recently sold in an auction sale in Paris for 230 and 210 euros.
The first one was intact and the second has a drawer corner broken.
Superb for collection or kitchen decoration in particular of industrial style.
Increasingly difficult to find.
Found in France at Oye-Plage (Pas de Calais).
