Wrightsville Hardware coffee mills are valuable collector’s items. They didn’t have as many models as other companies like Enterprise. The Wrightsville Hardware was founded by Harry Smith, Harry Kerr and Charles Shultz. The World War I production gave them a financial boost. But after the Great Depression, they reshaped the business by starting an iron novelty business.
No. 1707 Colonial Mill
One of the only 2 box coffee mills they had was No 1707 Colonial Mill. It is about 7″ x 7″ and 5 1/4″ tall. It had an orange label added, which made it somewhat popular. When you are looking for a No 1707, see if the orange label is still intact. That’s the key.
