Rare Large Sized Victorian Wirework Cake Cooling Rack
A versatile, useful and decorative late 19th Century wirework cooling rack.
Dating to the late 1800s, these Victorian wire work cooling racks are extremely scarce. The style is typical of the Victorian era, with the finish decorative while also highly useful – the raised bar around the edge of the rack was designed to prevent cakes from falling off the edge.
This cooling rack is a great piece of vintage kitchenalia to have in the home. Although it is simple in style, the raised bar adds a nice decorative feature to this cake rack and it is a rare large size. Great for ongoing use as a cake stand, but this rack would also look great displayed as part of a kitchenalia collection.
In overall excellent condition, there are just some minor patches of oxidisation on this rack. While the rack doesn’t sit quite flush, and there is a wobble if it is pushed down to one side, it is nonetheless still a very sturdy piece. There is one small section where the gridded wirework has misshapen slightly.
