Confession time: until a couple months ago, I didn't even know what a Dansk Teak Peppermill was, let alone the obsession people have with them. They were, however, hard to miss when researching vintage, MCM, scandinavian, thrifting, or other design-related subjects.
I found this guy on the back of a shelf, in the last stall, in an antique mall in the middle of nowhere. It's hard to believe someone selling at an antique mall wouldn't know what this was, but the price I paid suggests they had no clue (guess I'm not alone after all).
Having one of these in my possession, others' massive collections become understandable. It's a beautiful well-designed object. I love the removable pegs for refilling salt and pepper. The most surprising thing is the size: it's huge!
This will end up in our Etsy store, so be on the lookout.
