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 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.
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).
