This pedestal cake stand is just blessedly beautiful! It has been created here in our studio in Berlin out of hand-picked vintage items found in antique shops, charity shops and flea markets in and around the city. We have upcycled a lovely 1930s vintage blessing plate and attached it to a clear hexagonal ribbed pressed glass base from the 1950s. The plate shows a group of pale pink poppies in the center. The blessing "An Gottes Segen ist alles gelegen" has been printed on the rim in large gold old German lettering. Translated, this means "God’s blessing gained, all is obtained". These plates were usually part of a dowry or given as a wedding present. The porcelain itself is off-white and trimmed with a fine line of gold. One can still view the green mark as shown. It was used by the Porzellanfabrik C. M. Hutschenreuther, Hohenberg, Bavaria, Germany from 1934 until 1939.
Adding a dimension always makes a statement. This old world (pre- WWII) cake stand will make anything that you put on it glow with the aura of yesteryear. Simply lovely! Pretty for small cakes, cupcakes, petit fours, cookies, fruits & berries, etc...
The pedestal plate measures 10 1/8 inches in diameter and stands 6 5/8 inches high. We have used an industrial compound to attach the plate to the base. Please hand wash.
This listing is for the cake stand only. Cloches or domes are listed separately.
This charming piece is in very good vintage condition. There are no chips, cracks, crazing nor scratches worth mentioning. The plate was probably used for wall decor. Just a hint of gilt loss can be seen on the outer rim, which adds to the shabby chic appeal. Please note that parts of this stand are over 75 years old so some degree of wear should be expected.
We will gladly combine purchases and refund overpaid postage asap.
