- Pattern: Bride and Groom
- Vintage: 1940’s – 1950’s
- Details: What a lovely wedding scene on this trivet! It features a vintage Bride and Groom in their wedding finest, and it is signed by Audrey Burchell. This is a very old and very rare trivet, Audrey was a talented artist who worked at the Delano Studio, she did beautiful watercolor paintings, more of her story below. Delano Studios was well known for their decorations of fine china, tiles, glass and one of the first to introduce decorated cooking ware. According to some, the studio was torn down in the late 1960’s, but we were unable to confirm. The trivet is ceramic with a watercolor image originally painted by Audrey which is transformed into a decal then fired onto the ceramic. It has a cork backing, which acts as a thermal insulator and will absorb the heat from the trivet without passing it through to the underlying surface. The cork is stamped on the back with the Delano Studio logo, it’s hard to see, it’s a Crest with a sailboat, plates and a house and some feathers (or trees) sticking out the sides and it reads: “Decorated by Delano Studios”. There’s a high shine glaze on the ceramic to protect the image. Would make a very special decor piece for a Bridal Shower or gift for a new bride.
