A pair of A E Jones silver toast or crumpet racks

Price: £2,250

For sale is this rare pair of A E Jones silver toast or crumpet racks.  The racks each have six bars for five pieces of toast or crumpet (or bagels). Given the circular design and width between bars I think they are probably meant to be for crumpets, as illustrated.  The ends of the toast racks have classic A E Jones tudor rose button fixings.  A similar rectangular version of this design is known, presumably for toast.  I have never seen this circular design before.

The racks stands on four feet and are both fully assayed for Birmingham 1925. Condition is excellent.
