This is a cast iron trivet that was manufactured by Griswold for its “Puritan” line. Neither the name Griswold nor Puritan are on the trivet; it is identified by its characteristics and product number. It fits in a #9 skillet or dutch oven. The trivet has 3 stubby feet to hold it off the floor of the pan. It measures about 8-7/16″ in diameter (not including the small assist tabs). It is marked with the product number 189, and the number 9.
The trivet is free from cracks. It is heavy for a trivet; this is a substantial trivet. It sits level. It is clean and has been seasoned with one coat of Crisco vegetable shortening. It does have some spots that are darker than others, as you can see in the photos. This will even out with additional use. The trivet is ready for use.
