The first reference to a toast rack was in 1779, when it was featured in a report of a burglary where a silver toast rack was stolen. Initially, toast racks would have been in the belongings of a rich family, being made mostly of silver. As time went on, the toast rack became more available to a wider audience and were found in all sorts of different materials, such as silver plate, base metal, and pottery, the later being very popular at the beginning of the 20th century when it became the fashion to have toast racks in figural designs.

 

This is a silver plated toast rack with four sections and small turned out feet. It would have been used in a moderately wealthy household.

 

Condition is good with no wear to the silver plate
