Shields Tavern Trivet
This glass trivet bears the insignia of the Shields Tavern and the year 1745, inspired by the decor of the eponymous historic tavern in Colonial Williamsburg. 6" sq.
As an 18th-century Colony of the British Empire, Colonial Williamsburg served as a port of call for ships from all corners of the world, and the menu at James Shield's Tavern reflects those global influences. A customer would find molasses, sugar, and rum from the West Indies; wines from Portugal, Spain, and France; coffee from Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean; tea from Asia; lemons and limes from the Caribbean; and spices from all over the world. With gracious service and lively entertainment, Shield's Tavern offers a glimpse into the cosmopolitan nature of the British Colonies.
