24139b. (souvenir trivet) Yarmouth Lighthouse, Cape Forchu, Nova Scotia c.1900.

24139b. (souvenir trivet) Yarmouth Lighthouse, Cape Forchu, Nova Scotia c.1900. This unusual piece features a detailed b/w image of the light station and fog signal on the rocky bluff. The first Cape Forchu Lighthouse, a wooden octagonal tower standing eighteen meters tall, was first lit on January 15, 1840. The site of the tower was originally an island surrounded three by three bodies of water, Yarmouth Harbour, the Bay of Fundy, and the Atlantic Ocean, but a causeway to the island was later built. The fog whistle was established on the cape in 1869 and was sounded for ten seconds in every minute during foggy weather and snowstorms. The beautiful trivet is a lovely bright white color, with gilt decoration around the raised fluted border. Measures 5 5/8” square. Marked Made in Germany.” Clean, bright, no cracks or checks, a very detailed, pretty little item for your display. (VG+). $44.
