Vtg Dan Droz Designs Lauffer Peugeot Mid-century Modern Wooden Peppermill As Is :
This is a Vintage Dan Droz Designs Lauffer Peugeot Mid-Century Modern Wooden Peppermill in 'as is' condition. The peppermill is signed "Dan Droz Designs - TM - '75 - Lauffer. The peppermill mechanism itself is signed "Peugeot - Freres - Lion". The peppermill has a unique wooden design with a round top plug that comes out and reveals an opening probably for pepper. This round top plug also has a hole going through it - maybe for salt? There is also a side round knob near the bottom. This side knob is fixed and is probably used like a grip/handle. I do not know what kind of wood the peppermill is made out of - maybe teak? Although I am not an expert on these kinds of peppermills, I would say that it is in pretty good to fairly pretty good pre-owned vintage condition. It has some overall dirt and film - would recommend cleaning before using. The reason why it is being sold in 'as is' condition is because even though it is in overall relatively good shape, it has some darkened deep brown relative surface cracks, some minor scrapes, some light scuff spots, some fading in wood color in some parts, darkened spots, some thin white surface scratch marks, and darkened deep brown patches of wood. I do not know if the darkened deep brown surface cracks and patches are naturally formed flaws, but they look it to me - not completely sure. The overall wood color is pretty nice with some minor areas of fading and wear. There is enough nice wood texture and coloring to counteract with the fading and flaws. The bottom has some bit of gunk probably from pepper. The peppermill mechanism seems to work nicely and grinds smoothly. I tried my best to capture the detail in the photos of this peppermill to show the condition, but may not capture all the details and the flaws mentioned in the description. Overall it is a still a nice peppermill! (if you are not too picky about the flaws mentioned in the description). The peppermill measures about 8 1/2" tall by about 2 7/8" wide. Some of the lights, reflections and shadows that you see on thepeppermill are just in the photo. Photos may not show all flaws mentioned in description.
