“The No. 5, No. 6 and No. 7 ROYAL Coffee Roasters are handsomely finished with heavy aluminum outside jacket. Copper and Nickel Plated Trimmings. A revolving perforated steel cylinder is mounted within the jacket. The gas burner is placed underneath the cylinder at such a distance that a uniform circulation of heat is insured without submitting the berry to direct contact with the flame.

The No. 5 ROYAL Roaster can be furnished with a gasoline burner instead of gas burner, but the 6 and 7 roasters are made with burners for natural or artificial gas only.

The ROYAL Roasters are conceded to be the best and latest in design and finish of any roasting machines made, and are suitable for, and in harmony with, the most modern equipped stores in the country.”

This is the real mcCoy - with beautiful scrollwork. If you are in the coffee business this roaster will roast coffee but will also make an excellent display piece for an upscale restaurant, coffee house, whatever. Absolutely a gorgeous piece which will also roast peanuts or chestnuts to perfection.

This is one of the earliest roasters made!

ROYAL (REG U.S. PATENT OFF.)Coffee Roaster

Since the OP hasn't been around since the original post, I doubt they're checking this thread. Your only chance, and a slim one at that would be a PM in hopes that he'll get the notification of your PM.
