Historical ties to the past are evident in the undulating surfaces of our hand hewn reclaimed trivet. Each trivet is made of timber from the late 1800s, using Old World tools and techniques. Used with hot dishes as well as cold, this trivet is a must have for any table. We have added a contemporary element by adding a splash of high-gloss paint to the edges. Gently clean with soap and water. Treat with wood conditioner to preserve finish.
