While the bigger cake servers in the American pattern had official names such as “Salver”, Fostoria Glass Company simply called this piece a “Cake Stand”. It is approximately 10½” in diameter, and about 4″ high. Though not as big as it’s siblings, it is still a beautiful and elegant cake server.
While this Cake Stand was produced in the latter part of Fostoria’s reign, as such – it had a shorter production life. It is slightly lighter in weight (though still heavy) than the Round and Square Salvers, and it bears a different design on the plate’s edge. The edges flow upward, with graceful curves or points. Another difference worth pointing out is that this piece does not have an indentation (or “well”) in the center glass.
The Fostoria American Cake stand is definitely a beautiful and wonderful piece, and would be a lovely asset to have in your American collection. If interested in purchasing a Fostoria American Cake Server, please click on the following sponsored link for available Cake Stands on eBay.
