This 1970's vintage metal trivet is a funny conversation piece for sure. The trivet appease to be cast iron but feels too light so our guess is that it is made out of another similar metal material. The front reads, " If More Husbands Were Self- Starters The Wife Wouldn't Have To Be Such A Crank". The quote is written in white paint and there is also a yellow man wearing what appears to be a straw hat lounging on the front. .The edges are sprayed in gold paint, all paint is in excellent condition. There is no writing on the back but there is 3 pegs for setting the piece of the counter and also a hole at top to allow for wall hanging as well.We choose not to disclose our feeling of the validity or lack there of, but we will say that this piece is rather comical. This piece measures 4 1/2 inches across.
