not quite the image i wanted to post today, just ran out of time.
These are my favourite salt and pepper shakers, modern pottery based on the Guinness Toucan advertising from the 1930's.
"Toucans in their nests agree,
Guinness is good for you,
Try some today and see,
What one or toucan do."
The original design of the toucan was supposedly created by the author Dorothy L. Sayers (creator of Lord Peter Wimsey detective stories) when she was working as a copywriter, the final stylized Toucan was drawn by John Gilroy.
