£3,450.00

A rare Scottish provincial silver bannock rack by Thomas Shannon (Dundee c.1865),Similar to a toast rack, Scottish bannock racks were made to accommodate round unlevened cakes of oatmeal or barleymeal.

Its in good order and clean, on close inspection though there are a few points of note, one spar has a crack where it joins the base, one other looks to have had similar and repaired at some time (well done), another on the base has a silver solder but most probably this was done at the time of manufacture, one little hairline at the side of one foot (very minor and as its of good gauge this does not weaken it in anyway.

Its of excellent size and weight, measures 185x125mm and stands 150mm in height.
