This is a highly collectable little piece of antique Scottish Art Pottery.
Mak Merry toast racks are rare survivors without any damages.
This one features the white prunus flower pattern - that is available on many of my Mak Merry pieces in my online shop.
Here we have a wee toast rack with three ceramic bars to the middle - these would hold two little pieces of toast - there are little shallow dish compartments at each end - for containing butter and jams / marmalades.
It would look very pretty on a morning breakfast tray or table.
As you can see from my photographs - it is in lovely condition with no chips or cracks.
It is 6 1/2 inches in length with a width of 3 1/4 inches. And an overall height of 2 inches.
The weight is 150 grams (unpacked).
A very delightful hand-painted floral pattern - please see my other one with more unusual blue and pink flowers also listed here.
UK Posting is going to be £4.95 - and this is with Royal Mail Recorded Delivery. This will be applied at the checkout.
HISTORY: The MakMerry pottery grew out of the Scottish Women's Rural Institute, which was founded in 1917 in the Scottish town Macmerry by Catherine Blair.
Catherine had previously been an active Suffragist, campaigning for 'Votes for Women' and had a history of promoting female independence and equality. She became involved in the suffragette movement was by writing countless letters to the press about the plight of women.
In 1920 MakMerry was set up as the trading arm of the Institute. Initially, members invested small sums of money and produced food items for sale – but they soon moved into producing fine craftworks as well – one of the crafts was pottery decoration. They hand-painted smaller household items such as plates, shallow bowls, lidded pots and the sweetest teapots – and all these are instantly identifiable and often featured delicate and stylized floral patterns.
Exactly as described, very well packaged for safe transit and very promptly mailed.
