Silver

An A E Jones silver toast or crumpet rack

Price: £1,250

For sale is this rare A E Jones silver toast or crumpet rack.  The rack has six bars for five pieces of toast or crumpet. Given the circular design and width between bars I think it probably is meant to be for crumpets.  The ends of the toast rack 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 rack stands on four feet and is fully assayed for Birmingham 1936. Condition is excellent.
