This rectangular stand measures 7 3/8 inches by 11 3/4 inches on the top, not including the nicely scrolled legs. It is 3 3/4 inches high. This is a very versatile piece - it can be used inside or out for all sorts of things. Not only are they excellent trivets, but they make great plant stands too! You can also use these to show off your centerpiece or to add extra height in your tablescapes. They look especially nice holding a stack of antique books!
