Antique Cast Iron Trivet Heart Design & Letter With Three 2-Inch Legs and a Handle
Date: Uncertain but most likely mid to late 1800s (mid to late 19th century), could be earlier.
Origin: Purchased at an estate sale in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
Size: The trivet measures ~8 3/4" long, ~4" at its widest, and it is ~2 3/8" high. The piece weighs a little over 14.5 ounces.
Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a nice and rather unusual antique trivet that looks great. It would be a great addition to any collection.
Condition: The trivet is in generally good condition. It is all original and complete, which is a miracle after being around for over 100 years. It has no breaks, no losses, and no repairs. The trivet has general rust throughout but this does not compromise the structural integrity of the piece. It could be cleaned and polished off to return it to its original beauty, but we leave that to the discretion of the new owner. Other than that, the piece is all original and solid. Just a great antique to add to your collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
