Cast Iron Trivets
Erie Sad Iron Trivets
Possibly made for the Erie Railroad or by Griswold??? "RARE RARE RARE"
Now this is a real find! I have talked to a lot of the members in the Griswold Club, that I belong to, and no one has seen another one. One thought is that it may have been made for the "Erie Railroad" or by "Griswold" or maybe "Erie Tool". I have seen a lot of pieces made by tool companies and farm implement manufacturers and they are always very heavy and clunky. This trivet is so thin and such a fine casting, it will rival any Erie skillet out there for quality, so I doubt if it were made by any company not in the actual business of making hollow ware. This piece is also pictured on page #13 in the March. April, May issue of "The Pan Handler" The Official Newsletter of the Griswold & Cast Iron Cookware Association. So all you railroad buffs and collectors out there, let me know if you have seen another one. I believe this is one of those truly "Rare" and endangered species. This trivet will make A Great Center Piece to any Trivet Collection.
Trivet Measurements: 3 1/2" x 6 7/8" x 5/8"
