Product Description

An original coffee bean dispenser…

Although we are unsure of the actual age of this piece, we believe it could date to the mid to latter part of the 20th century, circa 1950s. Of French origin, this is an attractive piece and one that is functional commercially or even a cool quirky item for ones home

This particular piece is quite weighty, given its metal and brass build. Currently featuring some popcorn for display purposes, the dispenser would become ‘of a heavy nature’ when filled with your choice of product. This could be coffee beans, nuts or even sweets. The ‘false window’ at the front (in perspex) houses a small chamber that is used to display the contents. Having originally been sat behind a coffee counter in a coffee shop, the customer could actually see what was making their daily brew…

Simply lift the roof of the dispenser to reveal in the interior. Here, the front perspex screen houses a thin layer of popcorn, supported by a plastic sheet at the reverse. This is removable so one can display the product of their choice. There is ample space inside to fill the interior with products and once complete, simply shut the roof and then turn the bottom handle to dispense the product. One could also use the original scoop (that is housed just above) to gain the product an alternative way

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The dispenser is structurally good but has some surface scars and abrasions, particularly to the perspex fascia. The interior is relatively clean, yet we would recommend a deep clean to satisfy ones mind if adding new contents. Yes, it does smell like coffee inside a little, as when we found it there were still some beans inside. We feel the current condition simply adds to the look and authenticity… Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
