The Expanded A to Z Guide to Collecting Trivets is divided into Contemporary (post-1940) Trivets, Advertising Stands, and Antique and Vintage Trivets. New additions to the Contemporary Trivets section includes the entire series of 55 Electric Furnace man (EFM) trivets as well as information on contemporary Griswold trivets and Horace Strong’s Vermont trivets. The Advertising Stands section includes the results of Lynn’s ‘Colt’ trivet investigation, as well as an in-depth research study of panel trivets. And hand-forged trivets, wire trivets, Lantz (circular paw footed) trivets, and Rimby trivets (1840s Baltimore) are featured in the Antique & Vintage Trivets section.
There is again information on buying, selling, collecting, cleaning, and displaying trivets. The popular Conversations with Other Trivet Collectors has been repeated, with all-new essays from eight fellow collectors from around the world. And there is an entirely new section, An Introduction to Iron Collecting, which includes suggestions for new collectors – plus a very special section on the Toy Swan Iron. 2010 values.
