Dour Couple Salt & Pepper Shakers

This odd couple is a refreshing antidote to the numerous “cheerful” salt and pepper shakers that grace our kitchens. Found them at the Portobello Road flea market in London. Maybe they’re grumpy about all the horrible British food they’re forced to season.

    I do think that the sculptor/painter captured their expressions extraordinarily well but just what I want to look at when I throw some salt on my eggs, two grumpy looking people who are already in a bad mood by the time I’ve woken up.

    If you found them in London I think they’re grumpy because it’s always so dark and there’s too much rain.

    I think the one with the big blue eyes has a little bit of a come hither look. And Mr. Bow Tie isn’t grumpy as much as skeptical of Blue Eye’s motives.
