Have Information on This Jumbo Burr Mill?

Jumbo Burr Mill

I am seeking information on a burr mill I am hoping to restore. The majority of the paint is rusted through from years of setting outside, but it appears to have been painted a yellow color. What is left of the decal on the hopper says the piece is “part of the Jumbo Line” built by Nelson Bros. Mfg. Co., Saginaw, Michigan. In the center of the oval decal is an image of an elephant.

If anyone has any information on this mill, including original color, company information or a photograph of the complete decal, I would appreciate the help.
