Griswold cast iron trivet for a #8 skillet or dutch oven. This trivet has a silvered finish – I believe it to be nickel-plated iron. The finish is near-mint. Please see photos.
The trivet has 3 stubby feet to hold it off the cooking surface of the pan. It measures about 7-3/4″ in diameter (not including the small assist tabs). It is marked THE GRISWOLD MFG. CO. ERIE, PA., U.S.A. 8 TRIVET and the pattern number, which is 206.
The trivet is free from cracks. It sits level. It has been cleaned and heat-seasoned with a mixture of Crisco vegetable shortening and pam. It is ready to use.
