PEPPER BIRD - pepper grinder designed in the 1950s by Sven-Erik Tonn-Petersen

The Pepper Bird is a patent-protected quality pepper mill crafted in walnut, ash and maple, designed by the self-taught Danish designer Sven-Erik Tonn-Petersen (Tonn-P) in the 1950s. 

The Pepper Bird is a design icon that is both functional and decorative. It’s a beautiful example of the way quality handcraft and whimsical design can interact to achieve perfection.

The Pepper Bird and Salt Penguin go well together. These two design icons form an inseparable pair.

It makes a perfect wedding gift or birthday present for playful couples with an eye for Danish design icons.

The Pepper Bird was first produced in the late 1950s and quickly became a favourite in Danish homes. The Pepper Bird brings the table to life, is amusing, decorative and a delight for kids.
