Slice of Life

Set the table with a touch of the outdoors as you include this unusual plate among your dishes. A thin section of Brazilian agate, still framed by its rocky exterior, delicately exhibits its pretty mineral pattern, while proving strong enough to perform double duty as a trivet. Your choice of blue, natural or purple agate. Designed and assembled by Anna Rabinowicz in New York. Made of agate from southern Brazil.

Sold as a set of 2 per color. Color will vary. Some colors enhanced.

Take a studio tour and see where these trivets were designed.

        Comments about AGATE TRIVETS - SET OF 2:

        bought these to go along with the agate coasters by the same designer....so being that these were described as trivets, i was expecting them to be larger than the coasters....they really aren't and the box they arrive in says they are plates. One "plate" was very pretty, the other was not as nice...i realize these are natural products.....but for the money they should at least try to put two together that resemble a set....overall i was dissapointed....but as they were a gift for my boyfriend i didn't have time to send them back.

            I have the purple agate and use it as a "Sun Catcher" they look great mounted on a window and when the sun shines thru them its beautifull, I mounted them with suction cups

              The trivets are very pretty, but the price is absolutely ridiculous for their size.

                Comments about AGATE TRIVETS - SET OF 2:

                The colors in the blue trivets are beautiful, but are less vibrant than how the pictures display on my pc monitor. Because I had read that same comment in a review, I was prepared, and was therefore not dissappointed. I also ordered the agate frame (in purple) and found that color agate to be just as vibrant as the photo.

                  Super pretty- seems relatively durable, but not sure if I"d trust it around kids. GORGEOUS gifts though!

                      I thought this was a great idea for the hard to shop for person who loves to entertain. I was a little dissappointed in the size. I was expecting it to be larger.

                        I love the look of these natural agate trivets. The rubber feet make them usable in a number of locations throughout the house. Being made of natural stone, they should also work well for a nummber of applications in the kitchen.
