Where catalogs say trivet included with DuChro or Chromium DOs, they don't elaborate on whether they're even iron or aluminum. Considering plating literally doubled the prices of CI ware, I tend to doubt the trivets were plated, although they easily could have been without much effort. If so, I would expect to see nickel plate, not DuChro or certainly not mirror polish chrome.

I have owned a few nickel plated ones, but never duo-chrome.

Here are a couple pics of mine. How do I tell if it is regular cast iron or plated? It was supposedly regular cast iron but unseasoned. Looks awfully shiny to me.

Looks like plain iron. Plating on a piece that old would typically have both some good and some compromised areas of plating that would make it more obvious.
