The Pepper & Salt Grinders are antique style with a crank handle and are hand turned in walnut. The pepper grinder measures approximately 11″ high and 2-3/4″ in diameter and the salt grinder is approximately 5-3/4″ high and 2-1/4″ in diameter.
The pepper grinder has a cast metal grinding mechanism with a burr grinder. The small “door” at the front opens to fill easily with peppercorns. The grind can be adjusted to coarse or fine grind using the adjustment wheel, below the spring and knob on the top.
The salt grinder mechanism is made from porcelain – the “acorn nut” at the top is screwed off to remove the crank & fills easily with salt. The grind can be adjusted to coarse or fine grind using the adjustment wheel, below the spring and knob on the top.
As each piece is individually done, the one you receive may have slight variations from the one you see pictured here.
