This vintage cast iron trivet has a simple but appealing design of 2 s shaped scrolls back to back. It has an attractive flat black finish from having been seasoned (like with a cast iron skillet). This nicely designed trivet does have a minor flaw where one edge was not smoothed after the trivet was cast. This spot is pointed out in the 6th picture. Overall this vintage trivet is in good condition with no damage to the iron. This is a great looking vintage trivet to use and or display.
