Vintage Italian Tile Trivet Hand Painted Terra Cotta Kitchen Dining Wares
A really nice old tile trivet is probably one the longest lasting utilitarian items a woman can have in her kitchen. They are not only functional, but decorative, and nice tile trivets will last more than a life time.
You can use the trivet's on your table or hang them. I prefer not to hang them, but rather stand them up along the backsplash of the kitchen counter simply because I don't want them to fall off the wall and break. I have certain tile trivet's in my kitchen that I will never part with because I love the tiles. I actually despise metal trivet's because they get greasy over the years and are a nightmare to clean. They can also do great damage if dropped on your table, countertop, or your foot.
The only trouble with tiled trivet's: Really nice antique or vintage tiles are very difficult to find. For this reason, I began collecting them many years ago and today, I am able to offer a few, to ladies who can appreciate them!
In the 1970s, terra cotta tiles made in Italy were exported to the US and used in kitchens and baths. When tiles like this were popular, their production was very short lived. Finding a tile like this is rather uncommon today.
This tile has an overall dimpled texture and the star burst design was hand painted in dark green and dark brown glaze. The tile has a satin matt finish and a custom made wood frame in golden brown.
With the frame, the square trivet is 6 1/2" or 165 mm wide. The back of the tile has the Italian makers marks and is stamped Made in Italy. The entire tile is in pristine perfect bright and clean condition with no imperfections or flaws. There are no chips, cracks, scratches, or scuffs.
