Collecting, cleaning, displaying, researching, and appreciating TRIVETS and related go-withs!
This elegantly designed 7″ diameter brass trivet sold on eBay in March 2008 for $400. It was produced by Paul Beau, a renown Canadian artist and metal-crafter.Paul Beau (1871-1949) was a member of the Arts & Crafts movement in Canada. He spent a lifetime creating beautiful metalware by hand, long after others had turned to machine-manufacturing techniques. His items are varied and interesting. You’ll find four examples of other metalwork by Paul Beau at Parliament of Canada: Artifacts.
