The Marble Basics Big Basic Round Trivet is a large round Marble platter and base. Use it as a board for large wheels of cheese, fruit and nuts, or a huge birthday cake. An entertainer's delight. The Marble Basics Big Basic Round Trivet can be used as a plate, chopping board, placemat and platter - perfect for hors d'oeuvres. It is ideal to protect your table or bench from scorching dishes straight out of the oven. It is also great for placing precious objects on; we like to use it as a base to a cluster of candles or perfumes or a big vase of flowers and a large plant. It is also a practical and beautiful water dish to our Basic Pots. Just be sure to treat your marble with love and be wary of staining (read our marble care section). The Marble Basics Handcrafted, honed white and grey marble.
