The folding mechanism to this brass trivet works to the same principal as the Walkers patent folding hooks.
The trivet can be opened to a variety of sizes with the width increasing as the depth decreases. In addition to compressing the trivet size when not in use, the legs can also be unscrewed to further reduce its size. There is no indication to a maker but the trivet is dated to the underside March 1905.
