Nambe Hug 6-Inch Salt and Pepper Set. Product Dimensions: 6.6 x 6.5 x 3 inches. Item Weight: 2.2 pounds. Nambé Hug salt and pepper set; 6 inches high.

These embracing salt and pepper shakers add just the right amount of spice, livening up their environment with a hug and timeless elegance. Aptly named Hug, these two hourglass-shaped shakers make a romantic pair. One features a crescent-moon cutout along its length that fully embraces the other, which has a perfectly round top and bottom. Both of the shakers stand six inches tall, are quite heavy, and are utterly compelling both individually and as a snug-together unit.
The crescent top features three holes, the round top just one (black and white plastic plugs underneath may be used to specify pepper or salt). The Hug set is a creation of one of Nambé's most prolific and award-winning designers, Karim Rashid. The metal shakers will not chip or crack, and will maintain their mirror finish as long as they are washed by hand, never in a dishwasher. Nambé was founded in 1951 in a village of the same name in scenic northern New Mexico. From the beginning, the company focused on hand-producing high-quality, functional items such as metal bowls and trays with great attention to timeless, modern design.
Still made in the USA, Nambé's signature metal alloy is liquified, poured into a hand-made sand cast, and the resulting piece repeatedly polished and smoothed by hand. Exceptional gifts for the most special of occasions, Nambé metal bowls and accessories are now joined by porcelain and crystal pieces, each flawlessly crafted. Nambé ware has won numerous design awards, has been shown in or recognized by nearly two dozen museums worldwide, and is part of the permanent collections of many prestigious institutions.
