Collecting, cleaning, displaying, researching, and appreciating TRIVETS and related go-withs!

My Blog

As of October 15, 2020 there are 131 blog posts.

My blog Trivetology is a shared archive of items from my personal collections. I hope you’ll find the images and information both interesting and useful. Although many of these trivets have appeared in my two books, I’ve added additional information, photos and insights gained since the time of publication. You’ll also find blog posts describing new acquisitions to my ever-evolving collection.

● I usually post twice a month, on the 1st and the 15th.

● Followers of my blog are notified by email of each new post.

● Click “Older Posts” several times from the main page to fully populate the entire catalog of blog entries.

● Most images can be enlarged to better appreciate the detail. Click on any image.

Occasionally I’ll tweak a blog post in the first few days after publication, so be sure to review the prior post once again when the next one is published.

Starting 9/01/20 I’ll be opening Comments on each new blog post for 15 days, or until the next blog post is published. Due to the prevalence of spam I no longer maintain an active Comments section at the bottom the other blog posts or allow comments on images.

However, I always appreciate any comments, additional information, questions or suggestions you might have. I’ll occasionally add a reader’s information to a blog post in the form of a Comment or Update.

Finally, I’m always planning future blog posts. If there’s a topic you’d like discussed, please Contact Me.


Until now, the limited amount of existing documentation has made it challenging to research trivets. However, the internet is proving increasingly valuable each year as more images, foundry records and other information are archived.

My hope is that my blog posts will reach those who have knowledge of trivet provenance as well as specialized information on pattern designers, foundries, manufacturers and distributors. It’s always rewarding to learn and share new information through Trivetology! Please Contact Me if you have information to share.
