I saw this blog-post on Downtime: Mushrooms on Downtime
All those wonderful mushrooms reminded me of these spotty mushroom salt and pepper sets.
Made by Hornsea Pottery in 1955 or 1956, they have white stalks, the caps are in gentle pastel colours and they have a raised white slip dot decoration. There's a hole in the bottom with a rubber stopper for filling the cruets.
Mushroom shapes seem to crop up quite regularly in 1950s kitchenalia design styles (as do cacti, apples, cheese plants, etc.). I like these mushroom cruets because they're useful, they look great, and they're good fun.
