Antique of the Week: Toast Racks

Hi friends, today I’m continuing the last in our series of Victorian silver breakfast pieces. I hope you have enjoyed these tasty finds!

A great variety of artistic styles were incorporated to allow the breakfast toast to stand on end so that serving with a fork or tongs was more convenient.

If you can’t find an antique toast rack that you love, isn’t this new one (shown below) fabulous?! I found it through this English site.

Toast racks can still be put to use as originally intended, but also make very inventive letter holders or card holders!

Have a lovely day!
