They did some remodeling at the Trivet in Emmaus area and they took some of the trivets off the wall. I don't know where they are, but the new owner might sell some of them. Who knows?

The one trivet that PA dealer is talking about is chromed.

How do you know if one of these EFM trivets is original? Is there a stamp on the back of them or some other way to authenticate them?

Was at an auction the other week looking for some cast iron trivets for our wood/coal stove. Stumbled upon a 3 set -- two trivets and a base for them to rest upon.

They caught my eye b/c the one had " Ach don't talk so dumb" which is something I say too often. :? So I thought I just had to buy them. This one had a smaller Amish woman (black clothing and bonnet) in the center of it.

The other had "I speak English yet" which had a smaller Amish man (black clothing and hat) in the center.

Neither of them were painted. And never gave it thought to look on the back of these.

Just out of curiosity , how do you know they are replicated?

Thanks.

Return to page one of this thread and Richard provided a link to all the trivets. You can match your with the year and the translation.

It's a time consuming and expensive task to make the pattern for each trivet. I don't think they're valuable enough for anybody to go through the bother to copy them.

Probably not. It was a way for us to mount it on the wall.

For sale is a complete set of 30 EFM trivets from 1954 to 1984, one owner (my parents).

They look new, many are.

From the 1950's until his death in 1984, my Friend's father's business with EFM was elemental.

As such, he collected each trivet as they came out, year after year.

From 1981 on to 1983, we actually had the contract to paint the 500 trivets for EFM each year.

My friend's mother passed on in 2009, and I have them for sale.

Email or call me 4848382031 me to make an offer greater than $450,

There is also available an almost complete set missing only
