Description


This exceptional Victorian sterling silver cake stand/centrepiece has a two-tiered circular rounded form.


The centrepiece is fitted with two-tiered dishes, each embellished with an impressive chased decorated graduating lozenge pattern incorporating quatrefoil floral motifs, all emanating from a central floral petal design.


The shaped rim of each dish and circular base are each embellished with a paralleling applied bead decorated border.


The pedestal base is further ornamented with a plain knop ornamented with large quatrefoil floral motifs, identical to that of the graduating pattern.


The hallmarked detachable screw fit central support is encompassed with an applied spiralling band of bead decoration.


The upper portion of the central support is embellished with an impressive rounded cuboid shaped finial ornamented with further chased geometric decoration, matching the decoration to the body.


Such antique cake stands are quite scarce to the market.

This sterling silver antique cake stand is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

The chased and applied decoration is all very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the base and part hallmarks to the underside of the upper tier are all very clear.
