The Alexander Brass and copper salt mill is a stunning piece. It stands proudly 23cm tall and has brass detail to the top and base. The mill is designed to grind salt not just crush it, so your seasoning will on point.
These stunning handcrafted mills have been produced by a small family owned company in Thessaloniki in Northern Greece since the late 1970's. Derived from the design of a portable coffee mill given to Greek soldiers in the early 1900's, the grinding mechanism allows the user to change the coarseness of the grind, maximising aroma and fragrance of the salt.
As these mills are made of brass, oxidisation over time will occur. While the result is unpredictable due to variations in air moisture, the mill will develop an attractive patina over time. The mills require some regular care, but with something this beautiful, you'll want to look after it. Kali Oreksi!
