I had walked right past them the first time.
Why did I not notice them?
That would be because they were FILTHY.
Are they not fantastic?
I took a closer look at a shelf of assorted salt and pepper shakers as I made my way back to the front of the shop, and they kind of jumped out at me.
I think they were desperate for some attention, and they needed for me to rescue them!
I did, then, recognize them as being something special, though they have no markings.
They were made by Figgjo Flint of Norway, and I am VERY happy to say that I have put them to work in my kitchen.
They are sitting on top of my microwave.
For the life of me, I can't understand why somebody wouldn't bother to clean things up before putting them out for sale on a shop shelf.
It's certainly not something I would ever do.
They hadn't even bothered to put a price tag on them.
(I wish I had taken a "before" picture. They were covered with years of greasy kitchen grime - I guess. Gross.)
Quite the fabulous pair, I dare say.
