For sale is this rare silver toast rack by Joyce Himsworth. The toast rack is beautifully and simply made, a very good gauge and in excellent condition.
The design of the toast rack is modernist and dates to 1954. It is a perfect and rare example of that distinctive modern post war British “Festival of Britain” silver look, that is not Scandinavian in style nor simply a throwback to the art deco era.
This small five bar toast rack is cleverly made from a single curved silver sheet, cut away to create the bars set to “ski” feet with geometric design. Its brilliance is its simplicity.
