Art Deco Silver Plated Toast Rack
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 smart Art Deco silver plated toast rack, probably used on a breakfast tray as it has two sections, as aposed to a tost rack with many sections to be used by more than one person at the breakfast table, unusually the sections are quiet deep enabling the diner to have their toast thicker if required.
Condition is good with no wear to the silver plate.
