Goofy Moose Salt and Pepper Shakers

Updated on November 7, 2014

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 d├ęcor. 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.

Goofy?

You bet - and that's exactly what we love about this helpful kitchen-table moose! Like a resin moose figurine, but with a job to do. The two glass shakers are included.

 

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?)

The shape of these shakers is classic country diner, at least for those old family-owned diners we used to see along every rural American highway on those family vacation road trips or going up to the camp.

Hey, some bleary-eyed mornings on one of those guys-only hunting trips... breakfast with a bear and a moose? It could happen!

 

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.

No two are exactly alike, so you know you've got something very very special in this marvellous metal moose.

 

Rustic or Hipster, Moose S&P Shakers Amuse

Here's the best thing about introducing a touch of whimsical moose theme to your home - moose always bring a smile, they're just such a goofy looking animal. So whether your home is a hip urban condo, a student apartment, a rustic country cabin or a comfortable house in the suburbs, the majestic and amusing moose will live happily on your table, serving up salt and pepper with a smile.

Would you take your salt and pepper from a tabletop moose?

      First, I'd have to start putting salt and pepper on my food. Then of course, I'd use a Moose shaker.
