Plugs, bungs stoppers, the sort of thing to fill the filling holes in salt cellars etc..

 

I have it in my head that for ceramic purposes there is a collective name for these items, (which would be very useful for searching ceramic suppliers websites). :)

 

The name I can't get out of my head  is *Natches* but these seem to be for moulds.

Yes, those little plastic stoppers! I bet you can only order them from China and in lots of 5,000pcs. <_<

Let us know if you find a decent source for them!

I'm going to check those out John. I've been wanting some decent (with generous holes!) salt/pepper shakers for a long time. Danke!

Throw corkless shakers. They also work well.

Is that the semi-double walled creature that you speak of?

OK, thanks everyone. So,  no strange collective name then,  (I must have dreamt that - I do love a bit of Stilton for supper). :D

 

I'll just search for stoppers.

 

These are not actually for salt cellars - that was just an example which I hoped that everyone would know.
