Manhole Cover Cork Trivet-Providence

20.00

Founded in 1636 by Roger Williams, the capital of Rhode Island is at the confluence of the Woonasquatucket, Moshassuck & Seekonk rivers which in turn becomes the Providence River. That river empties into Narragansett Bay. The Narragansett Electric Power Company features prominently on this cover from the 70’s. The NEPC is now part of the British owned National Grid Group. So much for hard fought Independence. This cover has a subtle reference to the mafia activities that was at its acme when this cover was produced. Learn more about that via the Crimetown podcast series here.

"We all have three cities: the one in which we grew up, the one where we live and the one in which we wished we live."-Alan Furst
Put a functional memento of your favorite city on your table with a manhole cover in the form of a cork trivet. Each trivet replicates a real manhole from a city permanently etched into cork.

Each cork trivet is nearly 3/8" thick and about 7-1/4" in diameter. The engraving method has incredible detail and tactility. Fabricated from sustainable Portuguese cork and packaged from upcycled cardboard in Philadelphia, PA USA.

Shipping is free with any two orders or more (trivets and/or coasters.) Mixed styles and/or types. For example: NYC Coasters and a Budapest trivet ships free. Or a Philly Phever coaster set and a Grand Tour Coaster set ships free. Or a Hamburg trivet and a Roma trivet ships free. Or two Paris trivets and a Miami trivet ships free. We could go on….

Any single item order only is $3 shipping. See the International Shipping Options.
Cork is a natural material, thus rare aberrations within the etching can occur.

Listing is for the trivet only. See the coaster sets too.
