Peugeot silver Mignonette pepper and salt mills: a legacy in silverware: single mill
Peugeot salt and pepper mills are celebrated worldwide—many great chefs will use no other—and this, the Mignonette silver mill, is the oldest of the company’s designs, the one that set them on the path to fame. It is simply beautiful, a genuine silversmith’s piece, covered entirely in silver. It carries the square grade one hallmark that is a guarantee of the highest level of silverplating recognised by French law.
Next to this, other mills pale into insignificance: it looks and feels what it is, a timeless and elegant classic: heavy in the hand, smooth and glowing. Not only will it enhance your table settings, both modern and traditional, it will continue to do so for ever, and be handed down to the next generation. This makes it perfect as a timeless wedding or anniversary present, and it is very suitable for engraving.
Peugeot have made pepper, salt and coffee mills for longer than they have made cars, and the founding family still own the firm. The Peugeot mechanism is the key component, the finely tooled heavy-grade processed steel being virtually indestructible. Not only this, but the fineness of the pepper or salt can be tuned to an exact preference: fine for delicate sauces, coarse for steaks etc—an epicure’s delight.
Each mill is 4in tall (10cm), carries the French hallmark, and is packed in a smart presentation box.
