Here for sale is a great vintage ball mill made by the Pascall Engineering Company. They are still in operation and based in Crawley, Sussex England. This instrument has been salvaged from a Government laboratory. The pottery is hand thrown as it has a date in the clay to the base which we can't quite read. The transfer printed front means it is idea as a bookend or paper weight has it is heavy. It contains small balls inside and is used to grinding fine powder.Its a really interesting piece perfect as a decorative quirky display item.


Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
