Goofy Moose Salt and Pepper Shakers
Condiment Sets with a Sense of Humor for Your Country-Style Kitchen or Table
Once we've established that moose are funny-looking (and, let's face it, they are), getting a set of moose salt and pepper shakers is clearly the next logical step. Who couldn't use a chuckle at the breakfast table?
Collectibles with a sense of fun and whimsy - notably of the rustic back-slapping outhouse type of humor best executed in fine-detailed works of resin - no salt and pepper shaker collection, hunting lodge, or self-respecting country style kitchen can do without a set of moose shakers.
Don't bother to try to convince me otherwise, I've been making a deep study of comical kitchen accessories and I'm convinced - moose are the very thing to cap the rustic décor. And if you're decorating a cabin or lodge, where a sense of humor is practically law, the more goofy and anthropomorphic your moose shakers, the better!
River's Edge Moose - Classic Funny Moose Salt and Pepper Set
If you've ever stopped in at a north woods diner for a quick bowl of stew and a black coffee to go, or you've hunkered down for a week of hunting and fishing with the guys in a lodge up north in Mosquito Heaven, you'll immediately recognize this popular goofy moose-shaped salt and pepper set from their place on all those pancake-laden plastic-topped tables, right next to the ketchup squeeze bottle and jug of maple syrup.
Classy Moose Shaker Sets - Glass, Metal or Ceramic Moose Salt and Pepper Shakers
I'm just going to show you a couple sets of moose-and-bear salt and pepper shakers to prove that it actually is possible to go more to the tasteful folk-art side of tableware with the rustic King of the North Woods (moose) theme.
The Westland seasoning set here, in particular, manages to be both rustic and restrained. See the decorative touch of understated nature-inspired details on the sides of these classic glass shakers, a moose on one and a bear on the other, both painted in silhouette among grasses and trees. (If you are handy with a paint brush and the kind of paints made for painting on glass, maybe you could even create your own unique version, inspired by the Westland set?)
Moose and Bear Shaker Figurines - Got a Salt & Pepper Pair?
Although it may be cheating a bit with the moose motif, to bring in a bear on the tabletop team, I think we can allow it here just because it makes it all the easier to grab the right shaker without looking too closely. These two wild critters are naturals together, too - big lumbering critters of the north woods as they are.
That's one of those relatively mild-mannered black bears (not a man-eating grizzly) back-to-back with the moose figure, by the way, so you needn't be alarmed. You know, if you're the sort of person to get alarmed by 7.5-inch wild animals perched on your breakfast table, with their front legs wrapped around a salt shaker or a pepper shaker, respectively...
Hip Urban Recycled Moose - Modern Folk Art in Metal and Glass
Unique and whimsical, this Yardbirds moose sculpture handcrafted by Kentucky (USA) artist Richard Kolb is created from recycled scrap metal, designed to hold your salt and pepper shakers. One thing I love about the Yardbirds look is that it can fit in anywhere - funky enough for the urban loft, but rustic enough to love at the lodge or cottage.
