Lately I've been fixated on salt & pepper shakers or bowls — they are like mini objet d'art that also serve a purpose.
I especially like the ones that add a little bit of elegance to the table, making the meal feel like an occasion. I scanned eBay and the rest of the web and found these 10 examples.
