Description

This is a classic mid century pedestal cake stand by Dorothy Thorpe of California (1950's) which are fairly hard to find... I wonder how many have survived?! ;-) It is such a great design worthy of MoMA- modern, futuristic, minimalist, simple but so sophisticated!- so very Mad Men! Think "the Jetson's" meet Martha Stewart!

It would make a great eye-catching centerpiece for special entertaining or a spectacular base for your wedding cake!

The plate measures almost 13" in diameter and is 4 1/4" high, the base is 5 1/2" in diameter. In very good condition overall, the silver bands and center disk have some scuffs and small scratches and a few very small marks to the crystal (none to the top surface but a couple short scratches-apx 1/4"- in one area on the underside), as seen in the photos. I think these scuffs may have occurred in storage as they don't really appear to be typical utensil marks- this piece may have never been used! There is some oxidation to the silver- it actually appears have an iridescent finish in some areas- I have left it as it was when I acquired it- you may wish to polish it with care.

This will be shipped to USA destinations after funds have cleared via USPS Priority (with tracking, insurance) which generally may take 2 to 4 days depending on your location.

Other shipping options, including guaranteed "express overnight" at a substantially higher rate, are available upon request.

Shipping policies

Generally, I try to ship within 1 to 3 days of your purchase and payment*, if longer is necessary, I will let you know. *I can not ship items before the payment "clears"- this usually takes no more than 24hrs from the time you place the order and provide payment.

Insurance: Generally most items over $50.00 US or very fragile items will be insured as noted in the listing. This charge will be included in the shipping. If you would like me to include insurance on items below $50.00, please let me know before your purchase so I can modify the shipping charge which will include the insurance.

I ship most items via USPS mail. Smaller and lighter items (under 1 lb.) may be shipped as "first class" though USPS Priority mail may not be that much more. If you wish me to ship another way, please inquire before you purchase. Alternative methods, such as FedEX or UPS or ? may be arranged, inquire.

I am happy to combine multiple purchases at the same time into one package, when possible, to save on shipping charges. Unfortunately, sometimes this is not always possible- particularly to provide safe shipping of some larger or fragile items.

I often use recycled packing materials in shipping, always clean and usable from a non-smoking and pet free environment.

If you purchase an item for a gift, I can gift wrap and include a custom note for an additional charge. Let me know and I can arrange this service for you.

International shipping can be arranged, you must be willing to wait for a 4 to 6 week delivery and in some cases even longer. Often this is not the actual shipping time itself that takes so long but other processes such as customs and so forth. This varies from country to country. With most items, I will only ship internationally if I can send the item registered and insured to avoid problems beyond my control.

FAQs

I am happy to provide this service (including a custom, personalized note) for most smaller items at a modest charge. See the drop down menu or inquire for this service if there isn't one for a larger item. I am also offering special premium gift wrapping for the holiday season at an additional charge. Let me know so I can create a custom listing and you can provide information I will need to do this.

Please allow for an additional day in the processing of your order to provide this service.

Thank you!
As most experienced buyers of vintage and antique items will know, most objects have some signs of wear and use if you look very closely. I am vary careful to photograph and describe any of these condition issues in the listing.

Some items have some imperfections that have always been with the object- they were created or manufactured that way! I try to point these issues out as well.

If you have any questions- just inquire. I will try to clarify any of these issues for you.

Thank you!
I am willing to make special arrangements to ship most items internationally providing that it is legal to do so and that the buyer is willing and able to communicate with me so I can make those arrangements. Though I can understand and can communicate in many languages, I prefer you have a good understanding of English in order to understand the subtleties and details in making these arrangements. Sometimes the procedure is simple but sometimes more complex.

Most importantly, I ask that the buyer be fully aware that shipping and customs procedures may take up to several weeks and agree to that situation before making the purchase and my making the special arrangements.
I will be happy to combine the shipping of multiple purchases when possible. Some larger or more fragile items may have to be shipped separately to insure they arrive in good condition. If you have any questions just contact me for more information.

Thanks!
