For salethissuper antiqueVictorian Gothic Revival Silver Plated Folding toast Rack - Campaign / Safari / Grand Tour / Field Trips. c1850-1900
A super VictorianGothic Revival design. Designed to hold six slices of toast and yet be compactenough forCampaigns , Field Trips and Grand Tours.
There is no makers mark so I assume the toast rack is a Birminghampiece c1850 to 1900
TheRack is ingeneral good antiquecondition commensurate with material , great age and use -with some light wear to the silver and one relatively minor issue.
Please note :-
The silver plate isvery good for the great age and use , there is a typical antique patina in the deep recesses and the only area of relatively light plate rub is to the flat articulated base plates.
The only minor issue worth reporting is one of the bun feet is not quite square to the base plate, this has no effecton the use and very little effect to the super aesthetics.
Because of the design the very last gothic arch at each end sits at an angle when the toast rack is fully open again this has no effect on the use and is due to the design ,age and use.
A super example with typical light fair wear commensurate with a piece of great age.
