Ask a question

1955 18/8 stainless steel salt and pepper pots with Bakelite Bases designed by Pierre Forssell for Gense Sweden.
The salt is 11.8cms or nearly 4.5ins tall
The Pepper is 9.2cms or 3.7ins tall and both items are fully marked and signed by Pierre Forssell the designer.
A classic modernist design its hard to believe these were created over 60 years ago and are still as functional and beautiful today as the day they were created. A wonderful find.

Condition is good, there is some ware to the bakelite bases, (see photos), although these are a little worn this does not affect the function of the groove and screw slots that hold the funnels to the bases.

Combined shipping costs...
It's difficult to estimate the shipping cost for combined postage, with so many items of different shapes weights and sizes. We do our best to do this, however, if we overcharge on postage costs for multiple items, we will refund the difference. Or if you prefer you can message us for a shipping quote before you buy, let us know where in the world you are and we will find the best and lowest shipping price to your destination.
Please note items with a value of over £25 will need tracking for insurance purposes.

Customs and duties....
Everyone is responsible for there own customs tax and duties. ( I think you have to generally spend a lot to have to pay any, but it's up to you to look into it)


Exchanges and refunds are a pain for everyone, if you really aren't happy with your order, contact me, my theory is that every one should be happy and that shopping should be an enjoyable and pleasing experience, and never a disappointment.
