Hi everyone! I'm wondering if anyone has information on these trivets / hot pads? It's woven and made of milk glass (opaque glass) drum (or barrel) beads. This one is rather large at 13.5 x 8.25 inches. Were they kits? When were they popular? Do tey have a specific name? Not many examples on the net - and virtually no info! Thanks for your help!

    By the way - I think this is an elk. I know he is male because of his antlers - but what is the one cream bead doing on his inner thigh? I saw two other animal examples - just a single animal - not as elaborate as this and they had one errant bead, too. But it was in the middle of the field background. I also found one with folk art abstract image.

    I think they are Kits. My Mom had some & put them out on the table every Xmas, many moons ago.....

    How FUN! This was the featured pic on the Trivets category today! I posted here SIX years ago and forgot all about this! (Oh my where does the time go??) I think it was my first posting. Close to it, anyway!
