Object Description

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.
