While my most recent discovery isn't shiny in the realm of aluminum or polished stainless steel; these caught my eye in a small shop in Galena, IL last weekend. I ended up buying the entire set for my '78 Minuet. The colors just seemed so "retro", and go along with the burnt orange and autumn tones utilized in my Minuet's interior.
In the first photo is the Mr. Dudley "tall" pepper mill and salt shaker. They are identified as (Carnival #8210), and are about 6.5" tall. They appear to be made from wood, but I strongly suspect that it is some modern acrylic.
The fourth photo is the Mr. Dudley "squat" pepper mill and salt shaker. They are identified as (Pinata #8220), and are about 3.0" tall. As with the larger model, they appear to be made from wood, but are most likely some sort of acrylic.
The second and third photo display the matching condiment bowls. The larger is 5.5" across and about 3.0" tall; while the smaller is about 5.0" across and about 2.5" deep. The bowls didn't have any identifying tags or marks, but based upon their appearance must be from the same manufacturer.

I wasn't shopping for anything particular as the group I was with on its way to an evening play.
