Silver and Flatware/Bailey Banks and Biddle trivet


Hi Jim,

I have an ornate trivet with a stamp of Bailey Banks & Biddle. It is an expandable trivet with tiny wheels. Do you know anything about this trivet? Did BB&B make many trivets? I can't find any information on this.

Mi Hi

Your trivet sounds interesting but I'm afraid I know nothing about it.  BB&B did make a number of trivets and they may have put their name on trivets made by others.

Consider posting a picture of your trivet and a picture of the marks on the back along with you question on the forum found at A number of experts participate and maybe one will recognize your trivet.

Sorry i could not help.

Best wises,
