The durability of these mechanisms and their proven track record allows Peugeot to provide a lifetime guarantee on the grinding mechanism. The peppermill is 7 (18 cm) tall. This 50+ years old piece is in very good, all original vintage condition.
The natural finish and patina preserved beautifully. The octagonal top salt shaker has 6 holes. The internal tooth fill for both salt and pepper corns seen to have a nice fit, but we never tried to open for testing. The square bottom shows some might wear from use and it is mark with the earliest embossed logo: " Denmark JHQ ". The wood has some tiny nicks (please view all photos attached).Nothing major but we have to mention it for the accuracy of the description. Other than that, there is no wood damage and it looks like the peppermill was barely used. Original patina looks very nice. Extremely rare find, especially in its beautiful all original condition. The piece is very clean, comes from smoke free environment and would be a perfect addition to any of mid-century, Eames style collection! Beautiful decorative object, useful piece of art, wonderful and very elegant gift as well as a great investment! With normal care it will last for generations...
