Collecting, cleaning, displaying, researching, and appreciating TRIVETS and related go-withs!
I sometimes include a Gallery within a blog post. Here’s an alphabetical index to my Trivetology Galleries.
Companies began printing and distributing catalogs in the United States in the mid 1800s, documenting their inventory while reaching customers unable to travel to their stores. Collectors today find them both interesting and helpful when researching irons and trivets. Today most company catalogs are distributed online rather than in print. PS: If a company still exists today, I obtain permission to reprint with credit given.
Robert Emig Products, Reading, PA was a distributor of decorative metalware (1956-1980s).
The Iron Art Company, Phillipsburg, NJ was another distributor of decorative metalware (1959-1989).
Sometimes I discover catalog pages that are useful in documenting trivets.
