What Is It? January 2015


We had several correct answers to our January’s What Is It contest. Yes, the item is a toast holder or rack. This one is silver-plated from Cunard’s second Caronia, launched in 1947. It was bought in 1974 for five dollars at a shipboard sale after the vessel’s retirement.
Congratulations to Cheryl Miller of Ft. Collins,  Colorado; Dottie Unruh of Lakewood, Colorado; Jacque   Rutledge of Northglenn, Colorado (Jacque suggests that it could also be used for folded napkins); and Jo Taigman of Centennial, Colorado (Jo says that she uses her toast rack for holding outgoing mail.). Thank you all for entering. You have won a year’s subscription to the Mountain States Collector.
