Also known as “Shmoo,” these shakers were designed by Eva Zeisel (Hungarian-American, 1906-2011) in the 1940s as part of her iconic Town and Country line of informal tableware. Representative of Zeisel’s holistic approach and “playful search for beauty,” the two pieces intertwine, expressing a familial relationship.

Town and Country Salt and Pepper Shakers are in the Cooper Hewitt permanent collection.

Eva Zeisel is the winner of the 2005 National Design Award for Lifetime Achievement.
