Beautiful set of 4 vintage Rynne’s China solid white porcelain trivets made in Japan during the 1940’s or earlier featuring an ornate raised scroll border design and a gently scalloped edge. Back side of each trivet has 2 holes in its raised base for hanging as wall art. All 4 trivets are in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, wear, stains, or crazing. Trivets are in the box they were in when I purchased them at a local estate sale, complete with cardboard separators; they have obviously been well cared for.
Each trivet measures 6-1/2 inches diameter and has a footed base that raised the trivet approximately 1/8 to 1/4-inches off table surface.
Each trivet has a gold and black foil label attached on back which reads, “Rynne’s China Japan”.
Historical information from the Rynne China website: “How dreams come true. Agnes Rynne, porcelain artist, founder of Rynne China Co., had the burning desire to promote porcelain decorating. She began selling white porcelain from her basement. Her hobby grew into a full time business.
She made her first trip to Japan in 1949 and was the first woman to negotiate over the bargaining table for white porcelain. Her desire to have the best overglaze paint led her to Germany where she negotiated to import Dresden German paints and brushes. In Germany she displayed her talents of China painting before the many German factories.
Her knowledge and expertise has been handed down to her daughter JoAnn and three grandchildren Kathy, Mark and Don. Today Rynne China has four warehouses and is importing from Japan, Germany, France, Brazil, Poland, Czech Republic, Portugal, Taiwan, and China.
