Wedgwood 'Mayfield' salt, pepper & mustard set

Wedgwood ‘Mayfield’ salt, pepper & mustard set

I know that most people use throw-away grinders these days, but how sweet are these little Wedgwood salt and pepper shakers? And the shape of that mustard pot is so cool, and a great design – the extended rim that gives it that unusual shape makes the perfect handle for picking up the little pot! And it’s finished off with that fantastic 60’s-shaped saucer – a really handsome little set! Plus the cellars have their plastic stoppers which are so often missing, so the set’s completely functional. Obviously it means that you need to replace your Himalayan salt and roughly ground peppercorns with some finely ground s&p, but for the odd special occasion I think it’s worth the culinary sacrifice!

Dimensions: Shakers – 6cm tall x 5cm in diameter; Mustard pot – 6cm tall x 6.5cm in diameter; Saucer – 17cm long x 15cm wide

Price: R220 for the set
