This adorable white china toast rack is from the early Poole Pottery floral range designed by Truda Carter. It has dainty lilac polka dots on the handles, along with simple hand painted flower motifs and is signed by the paintress.
Not many of us use a toast rack at breakfast time and could be left wondering what such a lovely thing could be used for aside from toast?
Well, we think these are so brilliantly designed and sculptural they work as pieces of 'art' and also as letter racks or business card holders. We use ours to store letters by our front door ready to post, and also for our business cards so that they are to hand whenever we need them.
This would be a really great idea for businesses exhibiting at Vintage Fairs!! Click on the photo to see this toast rack in the yay retro! shop :O)blog comments powered by Disqus
