This decorative iron piece was auctioned off as a mystery piece and called an oversize trivet for hot pots and pans. I disagree. It has rubber tips on the reverse side unlike other trivets. It is quite heavy, and it measures 29 by 17.5 inches wide. The reverse side has quite a bit of rust.

Hi Rhonda,

You find the most interesting things! This is really cool, and I agree that it was unlikely meant to be used as a trivet. Is there any evidence that there were once hinges on the sides, that this might have been a gate of some sort?

Thanks to advise when you can,

Hi Delia:
I looked and looked and tried different search terms and I found it on Amazon.com
Good grief. I went on a fool's errand. Sorry. It is a cast iron doormat. $80. Sigh.

Oh no! Sorry to hear and thank you for letting me know.
Between you and me, I think it's a pretty cool thing...and who ever heard of a cast iron doormat?
This could make a pretty cool coffee table sandwiched between two pieces of glass...
