A George III Early Sterling Silver Toast Rack
Item Details
Description
A George III Early Sterling Silver Toast Rack
Andrew Fogelberg, London, 1775
Of boat-form with gadroon border with ram's head masks, raised on four foliate feet. Length 10 inches (25.5 cm), approximately 16 ounces.

This appears to be one of the earliest examples of a new form of silver that began to catch on at society breakfast tables in London in the 1770s. Toast racks were not only fashionable, but also practical in that they kept condensation from creating soggy stacks of toast.

This model was also used by London silversmiths Parker & Wakelin (an example dated 1774 was sold Sotheby's New York, October 16, 1996, lot 295), and likely was adapted from either an inkstand or a stand for candle snuffers.

Condition
Generally good condition overall; slight bending to feet; slight bending to wire dividers and one loose; clearly hallmarked underside
