unusually decorative toast rack

I found this James Deakin & Sons silver plated toast rack, and wondered if anyone can help me with its worth? I can’t seem to find one quite so detailed on the web to compare it to. I know it dates circa 1871-1898. It has polished up beautifully and has no scratches/dents.
I haven’t got a picture of the hallmarks on hand but it has JD & S (James Deakin & Sons), B.P (Britannia Plate?), and an image of a lamp (Deakin’s trademark symbol 1871-1898).
