This wonderful Fire King Table Server trivet is in the creamy white that Anchor Hocking called Ivory. This handy trivet was called a "table server" by Anchor Hocking Glass and was made to accompany a matching casserole dish. The two 1-1/2 inch handles have a molded seashell-like design, and a scrolled band of tiny circles stretches around the rim, divided in two by the handles. The top of the hot plate has eight slightly raised ribs to support a hot casserole and lift it from the table.
This Table Server measures 8-1/4 inches in diameter at the bottom and the top rim is 7-inches. The handles measure 10-1/4 inches across, and the trivet stands 1-1/4 inches tall.
This ivory color was introduced by Anchor Hocking in 1948, and these table servers continued in production during the 1950s.
The embossed mark in the center top reads "Fire-King Oven Glass."
As is common in vintage glassware, there are expected surface scratches, and there are numerous manufacturing flaws and straw marks. Two of the scratches on the top and two more on the underside are deep enough to catch a fingernail, but may have been done in the manufacture.
