Probably you will pick up an idea or two for putting a toast rack to more uses. Have you ever served waffles in them for a breakfast in bed or a lazy Sunday brunch? Look at this photo from an old Victoria magazine where you can see the example.
Bet you like that!
Here you see an antique silver plated Christofle Toast Rack being put to use as a card or letter holder.
This one was available at my Zen Cart powered on line boutique: Mariette's Back to Basics.
This 1912-1914 model does have 4 slots.
And yes, I picked fresh blueberries today from our garden...

Next tip is to use the toast rack for holding napkins! Folded into a triangle seen here are cocktail napkins that can be used for a tea or hors d'oeuvres.
Of course you can easily fold in two napkins per slot, I used only one for each opening.
Here you can see it without anything inside...
The Christofle hall mark and that number 7 in a square frame stands for 7 grams of pure silver laid on the alloy (probably brass).
To the right there are more numbers.
From an old Christofle catalog.
Shown is one with 6 openings, it was available in two sizes.
Sorry Sold out...
