    Default Iron Holder?

    Hi guys! I just wanted to share my latest find with you. Iím not sure what the proper name is for it but I think it was used to hold an iron. I wasnít really sure where I should post this but if Iíve posted it in the wrong forum I am sorry. Any thoughts on what it may be or if it has any relative significance would be appreciated.
    Thanks
    Kirby

    Round our ways it's called a 'Trivet'.

    Kirby I dont think this is a WWII German Item. Before the war the swastika was used as a good luck symbol. The swastika wa on every thing from plates to floor tiles. Gary

    Right, it's an American trivet. Here's one on ebay eBay.com.my: Vintage SWASTIKA Good Luck Cast Iron Trivet Spade (item 310093872801 end time Nov 15, 2009 22:04:25 MYT)

    Neat item for its use of the swastika as a good luck symbol. It's probably early 20th century.

    Gary, Ned, pjm,

    Yes you are right, it is not a WWII item. After Ned was kind enough to give me the proper name It did not take me long to figure out what it really is.

    From now on I will stick to what I know and not try to collect things I "think" are relevant.

    Lesson learned!

    Thanks Guys!
