Your cakes will never look better than on this fabulous cake stand made by Hobbs, Brockunier & Co. of Wheeling, West Virginia, dating to about 1879. This pattern, called ‘Tree of Life,’ is similar to glass and porcelain hand vases which were popular during the late nineteenth century. The pressed design is very crisp and detailed--I love the beaded bracelet, with the smaller size beads at the inside of the wrist.

Measures an impressive 9 inches high, 11 3/4 inches diameter.

Overall condition is very good. There are scratches from use on the top surface and one tiny flake at the outer edge of the foot.
