My Antique Pepper Mills

Here are a few antique pepper grinders from my collection.  I have been collecting pepper mills for about 13 years now.  The milk churn is English, the bear is German (pepper comes out of its mouth), and the two on the right are French.  The mill to the far right is made by Peugeot Freres ca. 1900.


  1. what a unique collection! i never would have thought of collecting antique pepper mills! they make such a fabulous statement!

  2. I'm impressed about your collection. Do you own more than 10?
    Thanks for showing us

  3. Yes, I have a rather large collection of over 500. Very difficult to find in the U.S.

  4. Hi, this is a late reply, but do you know much about the one second front the right? I believe this to be a Peugeot type A or C from about 1880, before the registered mark was used. I recently bought a similar one at auction in the UK. Mine has a fluted cut crystal font. I'd love to hear more about it
