I was curious if anyone had seen this particular trivet before, I have not found one as of late like it. I collect old things but my forte is not with trivets :) The ones I do find have the "heart" and / or "handle" this one has neither. I thought at first that it might be broken (the handle) but there is a perfect hole just inside the grain. The measurements are 6" L. x 5-1/4" widest point at bottom. It has WILTON in a "block" and the number 10 is along the side, you can see it in the picture of the back of the trivet. Thanks for any light you can shed on this wonderful old piece in time.
( NOTE: THE PICTURE THAT IS OF THE PAINTED TRIVET IS A COMPARISON FROM EBAY, IT HAS HANDLES AND A HEART, MINE DOESN'T HAVE EITHER FEATURE )
