    I just took a quick look through the Primus catalogues in the Reference Library and the 1120 coffee roaster shows up in those from the 1920s and 1930s. If you become a member you can peruse them yourself and compare yours to the illustrations in the catalogues to nail down the age a little further. As for valuation it's hard to say because they come up for sale so rarely. Condition is also an issue. Can you post some photos?

    Wow that's a really nice one! I'd say it's from the 1920's. Here's a couple of examples from the Reference Gallery:

    From a 1920 Primus catalogue

    From a 1929 French Primus catalogue

    Cool. Thanks so much for taking the time to look this up. Trying to help my cousin sell some things from an estate sale from her mother in law.

    I'm interested in buying it so let me know when and where you put it up for sale.
