England, Mid to Late 18th Century



The rectangular top with a shaped front edge, the brass top pierced with s- and c-scrolls, interlaced circles and two hearts, the whole raised on three iron legs with a straight section above three cabriole legs joined by a curving stretcher and ending in shell-form pad feet


Note : “Trivets” were raised on legs of iron to enable tem to sit in the actual fire, supporting the cooking vessel for cooking, warming or stirring.  Before the 18th century, trivets were usually made entirely of iron, the three legs providing more stability on uneven surfaces.  In the 18th century, they became much more elaborate, and even gained a 4th leg, those being known as “footmen”.  With footmen, only the back legs are usually of iron.
