Antique Dr Christopher Dresser design, silver plate toast rack or letter rack, in the aesthetic movement style. Thought to be a Dr Christopher Dresser design, but only marked with 4048 to the base. Most Dresser plate items, were unmarked. Difficult to date, but I would suggest around 1880 - 1900.Good condition for age, with some superficial scratches, tarnishing and wear to the silver plate. 9.5ch wide, 7cm deep and 11cm high. Christopher Dresser (4 July 1834 24 November 1904) was a Scottish designer and design theorist, now widely known as one of the first and most important, independent designers.
He was a pivotal figure in the Aesthetic Movement and a major contributor to the allied Anglo-Japanese or Modern English style, both of which originated in England and had long-lasting international influence.
