Vintage Treen Wooden Egg Rack for One Dozen or 12 Eggs Painted in Grey
This late Victorian treen egg rack dates from the late 1800s and is in wonderful condition, perfect for adding a farmhouse country feel to a kitchen.
This antique wooden egg rack is a lovely item. At the time this egg rack was produced, it was common for all households to store their eggs in a tiered arrangement to keep them as high up as possible (away from any small intruders who might want to take this precious commodity). As time has gone by, these egg racks have often been painted to blend in with different kitchen colour schemes.
Capable of holding a dozen eggs on two tiers, it has been painted in a light grey colour which would blend in well to many kitchen colour schemes. This item was found painted, which has been done to a high standard and has been finished with wax. The colour is a light grey with bluer (rather than creamier) tones to it.
This egg rack is in wonderful condition. One leg is raised very slightly higher than the others, meaning there is a very slight wobble when pressed down. However, it sits sturdily with eggs in on a counter top.
