  1. Ken,

    My question does not have anything to do with the Tinshop but concerns a recent purchase at a consignment store. I recently bought an iron fireplace trivet. The tag on it read made in Colonial Williamsburg 1960 by a blacksmith whose last name was Allred.

    My question is, does CW still make these trivets and are they available in one on the shops ( Greenhow’s, Prentis or Tarpley’s)?

    I have seen them in the shops but cannot remember how long ago.
