Not only decorative but functional this lovely English Brass English Trivet is ready to hold your teapot. The pierced design includes a motif of a lion on the top. The sturdy legs end with claw feet. The rectangular Trivet is 10" long, 5 3/4" wide, and 4" tall. The Trivet is of good quality brass without any dark spots. There is one edge crack along the 10" side above the lion's head. It does not detract from the overall beauty of this item.
