Show and Tell Cake Stand

As promised in Tuesday Post comments, this is the lovely Shell Pink Milk Glass Pedestal Cake Stand that held the bunch of grapes. It was made by the Jeannette Glass Company , circa late 1950"s.

The 10" diameter top has a starburst in the center, encircled with a raised ribbed and diamond pattern. The raised edge is decorated with hobnails.

Turning the cake plate over, you can see the interesting tear-drop shape raised edge.

A Birthday Cake or Mother's Day Cake would be the center of attention, served on this vintage cake stand.

Hope you have enjoyed another Show and Tell .....
