George II Brass Trivet with Engraved Brass Legs

0.00

This brass and iron trivet is a bit better than the ones normally found. The maker went to a little extra trouble, adding little urn finials to the ends of the top, which is pierced and engraved and depicts an eagle with outspread wings. Also, unusually, it has brass legs, which are engraved.

Circa 1740

Height - 12 inches     8 inches by 14 1/2 inches overall
