Trivets

1990? French aluminum trivet portraying FC.  8" in diameter.  40 Francs from Nelly Skutecki, Monflanquin, France, through Ebay, Nov., '01.

Now, who would ever have thought that a fable would present the motif for a trivet?!  I was surprised to see this "Dessous de plat alu" up for auction on Ebay, and very pleasantly surprised when I won it!  There is even some nice detailing on the tree.
