Antique Early 20th Century Rustic Egg Rack for One Dozen Eggs

antique early 20th century primitive rustic stackable treen egg rack one dozen 12 eggs

A delightful treen rustic egg rack to hold one dozen eggs, dating from the early to mid 20th Century.

This English wooden egg rack has capacity to hold up to 12 eggs on a single tier. This more compact size rack is difficult to source.

It was common for these racks to be used in the kitchens of large houses, where many eggs would be used daily. In fact, in Downton Abbey, the kitchen had an egg rack the same style as this, although it did run the entire length of the kitchen island. These racks could also be stacked on top of each other in order to deter pests from getting their hands on precious fresh eggs.

Of primitive construction, this has an overall rustic and handmade appearance. However, it is well made and a solid and stable piece. The top egg tray section dips very slightly and there are also a couple of old worm holes but these have been treated for assurance.

In summary, this is a great piece of antique treen kitchenalia which is still perfect for use today.
