Eva Zeisel's ca. 1945 "Town and Country" salt and pepper shakers, suggestive of two cuddling figures, are unquestionably her most memorable design. Reproductions of the salt and pepper, including this pair from 1997, have been commissioned in recent years to fill the demand for these irrestistible icons.
