Cult Following: Danish Pepper Mills
Thursday, April 21, 2016
There is an unbelievable obsessive following for Danish teak pepper mills, especially those vintage ones designed by Jens Quistgaard for Dansk. (OMG, vintage Dansk in general. Don't even get me started. Waaaant.) These simple, sculptural pieces typically go from anywhere from $30 upwards to $200 for the unique ones on eBay -- although a few deals can be found if you're willing to go with non-branded versions (just stick to the terms "danish teak salt pepper") and if you keep close watch for good deals (hello, ebay alerts!).
Not that anyone really neeeeeeds 15 pepper mills, but gathering a cluster of these chess-like pieces on a simple tray looks so elegant and cool. And therefore, so awesome.
