Dismembered Doll Canisters

Baby Legs Ceramic Salt and Pepper Shakers Have You Eat with Feet

— January 31, 2011 — Art & Design
It's hard to guess what kind of interior decor might welcome these Baby Legs Ceramic Salt and Pepper Shakers to the dinner table, yet here they are -- the "sunburned edition."

Made by Etsy artist Modernfx, these peculiar pink doll limbs have holes drilled into the soles of their figurine feet, and with stoppers in the thighs, they hold and serve condiments just like the more conventionally shaped vessels. The Baby Legs Ceramic Salt and Pepper Shakers can be purchased from the designer's website, so long as your guests have have the stomach for gripping an imitation infant appendage.
