Silly Post-- In Honor of Trivet(s)

 At the Shelburne Museum, in Shelburne, Vermont, there is an extraordinary collection of trivets.
Here they are in all their variations.

I love all the different shapes, materials, motifs, & decorative flourishes.
I can't wrap my mind around the mind of the person who collected all of these... 
This said by a person who has collected 16 or more egg-beaters....









Question: does the name trivet refer to tri-vets?  (= 3 vets?) 
So many of them have three legs.
Well, she answered herself, 3 points define a plane, that's probably the reason.
That's it for now, from Daphne X-Trivett!
