Hello,

i got this grinder together with my 3grp. Gaggia Internazionale from 1955 so I guess it is from the mid-fifties as well. Apart from that I have zero information about this piece. Someone thought it was from "Victoria Arduino" but I'm not sure about it.
The grinder is heavy (guess about 30-40 kg) and has a glass hopper. So has anyone information about this piece (Manufacturer, modell, diagramms, anything...)?
