Hand-wrought iron trivet with three legs. This trivet is known as a "tinamaiste." It was used to support a caso (kettle) over a campfire. As is typical for this form, the trivet is pieced together from scrap. The ring and two wide legs are made from old wagon tires; the thin leg from two scraps of horseshoes welded together.

Date: between 1800 and 1880
