    strange find...

    I was in the shop Victoria's basement or something in the QVB looking for a mother's day present when i stumbled across this pepper mill with Peugeot France stamped on the bottom of the mechanical part! It did have a lion except this one was on all four legs.

    I should go back and stick an aussiefrogs sticker on it

    Andreas,

    "House" in Chadstone shopping centre has them. Pretty pricey though as far as I recall.

    Rek,

    the price was what made me notice them. They were smaller than the other ones but more expensive. I wonder if these things have reliability problems?

    Hi,

    Peugeot pepper mills have a very good reputation but are generally expensive

    See here for an article mentioning other things they make:

    <a href="http://www.autoweb.com.au/id_PEU/doc_peu0006261/article.html" target="_blank">Article about Peugeot Museum</a>

    Maybe you can get a Peugeot mixmaster!

    You'll find them in many of the "House' type stores in Melbourne, rek. In the past I've also seen the in Myers and DJ's etc.

    Cheers
