Antique Late Victorian or Edwardian Single Tiered Stackable Treen Egg Rack for 24 or Two Dozen Eggs
This is a listing for a late Victorian/Edwardian treen egg rack, dating from the late 1800s/early 1900s.
This English wooden egg rack dates from the late Victorian period or early 1900s, with capacity to hold up to 24 eggs on a single tier. 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.
Of simple construction, this egg rack has a primitive and rustic style. It is in excellent condition considering its age, with just some patches of staining and grease marks to the top surface. The joins are still very solid, and the rack stands very firmly with no rocks or wobbles. There is one old small worm hole and a splash of paint on the base of one of the feet, but otherwise this is very good. And there are no splits to the wood which is very common on these pieces.
In summary, this is a great piece of antique treen kitchenalia which is still perfect for use today.
