A unique early 19th century English Sheffield silver toast rack with cricket motif. Five sets of crossed cricket bats make up the rack, while the handle consists of an ring atop a cricket ball, with an emblem of crossed cricket bats with balls. The feet are also comprised of cricket balls to complete the theme. A truly amazing piece of English history. Americans- please make note this is a toast rack not a letter holder. Please use responsibly. Measures 6" tall and 7.5" wide. Circa 1900.
