Flatiron Trivet, Signed, H. BARTON, (East Hampton, Connecticut)
Simple and elegant, beautiful casting and patina
Date/Period: After 1826


Flatiron Trivet, Signed, H. BARTON, (East Hampton, Connecticut) Simple and elegant, beautiful casting and patina, entire view

Measurement: 1.5" x 11" x 4"

Material: Iron, maple handle

Condition: Trivet is fine, loss to underside of handle where pierced by trivet tang.

Additional Information: A simple casting of one-piece featuring heart-shaped
ornament and the impressed mark “H. BARTON”. The mark is stylistically like that of the
“W. BARTON” mark used by William Barton, Jr. (1762-1849) purportedly the first brass
founder in East Hampton, Connection, in 1808. Two of his sons, Hubbard and Hiram
assumed responsibility for their father’s shop when he moved to New York in 1826.
Only Hiram was living in Middlesex County according to the 1830 Connecticut census. It
is believed that Hubbard gave up brass founding for farming; he is not listed as head of
household until the 1840 census. It is known that Hiram continued in the brass founding
business in a shop near his late residence on Barton Hill, and later in a factory on the
road leading west from East Hampton. The Winterthur Museum owns an identical trivet
sans handle.

Reference: See Metalwork in Early America – Copper And Its Alloys by Donald
Fennimore, page 368. Mr. Fennimore states “Hiram Barton is, therefore, the more likely
maker of this trivet
”.
