gdluck_triv.jpg (19726 bytes)Brass / Bronze Horseshoe-shaped Trivet with Star  This is one I haven't seen before.  It is made of brass or bronze and has a really wonderful dark, rich patina and a smooth and slightly worn surface.  The 6-pointed star that is cast into the center of the horseshoe is marked with the words "Good Luck", and there is an Oriental character to the lettering style.  This trivet was purchased in Northern California and probably dates back to the days when San Francisco and other cities had numerous Chinese laundries.

Good . . . . .  SOLD





Cast Iron TrivetFolding / Hinged Trivet for Pease Combination Flatiron / Fluter  This odd and unusual-looking trivet is a mystery to many with a function that is actually very cleaver and unique.  It is extremely unusual in design, having a hinged front "toe" that allows it to fold down.  Invented by Horace Pease, the maker of the highly-regarded Pease Combination iron, the trivet was designed to allow the iron to go from being a flatiron to a fluter.  When used as a traditional trivet it functioned as a stand that was a perfect fit for the base of the charcoal heated Pease flatiron.  But the second function provided that when the trivet was moved to the edge of the ironing board or ironing table so that the toe was allowed to overhang and fold down over the edge, it allowed the iron to be laid over on its side so that the fluting plate that was attached to the side of the iron could be used in an upright position, converting it from flatiron to fluter.  The trivet is the hardest part of the complete Pease iron set to find, as many undoubtedly got separated and forever lost.  Whether you use to complete your set or simply to display for its interesting and intriguing design I guarantee you will love the condition of this example.

Good . . . . .  SOLD




Vintage TrivetDouble Pointed Ironing "Shoe  Often mistakenly called a trivet, this innovative ironing device was clamped onto the sole of a sadiron after it had been heated on the stove, helping to alleviate the persistent problem of the soot and ashes that were invariably picked up by iron bottom as it was warming and which were so un-welcomed around clean laundry.

Good . . . . .  SOLD
