Description: Here is a rare set of the Haussmann Ears salt and pepper shakers and the iconic peppermill. These were another important design for Swid Powell by the Haussmann’s.  The shakers are very heavy and well-made and despite their short stature they have a commanding presence.  The shakers are scarcely found as they were only produced for one year, unlike the peppermill, which was more popular and was in production for several years.  Marked on bottom Swid Powell, Made in Italy and with the Haussmann’s monogram.  We have discounted the overall price on this set because the peppermill is well used and somewhat overpolished. We have sold several of the peppermills alone for the price of this entire set. These can be found in the Yale University Art Gallery.References: Tapert, Annette.SWID POWELL: Objects by Architects, Thames and Hudson, (1990).

Condition: The salt and pepper are very good with some scuffs and minor dings as shown and small spots of tarnish, but no loss of silver-plating and forgivable due to the scarcity of these objects.  The peppermill is good with obvious loss of shine to silverplate from over-polishing, but no base metal brass showing through.  The flash used in the photography highlights what looks like discoloration of the peppermill, but it is much less apparent in natural light and it is still quite presentable.
