EDINBURGH. A very rare George III Toast Rack made by Robert Gray & Son of Glasgow and assayed in Edinburgh in 1808.


The Toast Rack has a rectangular platform base and four slender shaped feet. This example is modelled in a very unusual form and has six arched divisions and a circular carrying handle at the top. In addition, each side displays a carrying oval attached to the main frame with scroll mouldings. One of the ovals is engraved with a contemporary Scottish Crest issuing from a Ducal Coronet, with the motto 'Fortis Et Fidus - Brave & Faithful' engraved on a banner above. The toast rack is in excellent condition and is very well marked on the base. Toast racks are extremely rare from Scotland, especially made in this unusual design by Robert Gray, referred to as the Paul Storr of the North.
