Found: Vintage Tile Trivets

I come across a lot of these vintage cast iron trivets with the inset tiles at thrift stores. I don't buy all of them, because there are newer ones that I don't care for.
But, thus far, the first one you see below was the greatest of them all.
New Orleans Square at Disneyland!!
 I feel certain that this was sold at Disneyland in the 1970's.
 I have never seen one before; I imagine there were others for Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, etc. - but I didn't know they existed.
I will NOT be parting with this little treasure!
The next three were all found together.
"Home Sweet Home" is my fave of the three, as I love the pink, orange and green, but it's certainly a shame that it is cracked:
It's still pretty cute:
"Welcome" is nice, too, bright colors, a chicken, and flowers:
Who says there's no such thing as a free lunch?
I think you can get one in the kitchen where this next trivet is displayed.......
Here are some of the ones I have for sale in my space at A. Flowers in Jamestown:
(And, by the way, just let me know if you are interested in one - they ARE for sale, after all.
Except for the keeper up top in this post!)

I don't remember seeing the Disney trivet but I can imagine it might have been sold in the Le Gourmet shop in New Orleans Sq. I like the next three, especially since the "frame" is made to look like an old cast iron stove. You have quite a collection!
