Manhole Cover Cork Trivet-St. Louis

20.00

The Gateway to the West, St. Louis is more than just Saarinen’s arch (although it is remarkable.) Once a native american trading hub given its proximity to the intersection of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers, the French laid claim to it in 1764 only to sell it to the Spanish soon after, then take it back and then sell it again to Jefferson in 1803. It is that river water that is paramount to the city’s success as exemplified by the scale of the word “WATER” on this manhole cover. Chamfered lettering and pragmatic raised rectangular shapes fill out the rest. An adapted letter “O” lends room for a parabolic void.
