The Fostoria American Square Salver is a very impressive piece of glass. While most people today call this piece a “Cake Stand”, Fostoria called it a “Salver” – which simply means a tray that was especially made for serving food or beverages. Fostoria produced two Salvers – the square one you see pictured here, and the beautiful Round Salver. Other cake stands and/or servers were also made.
The Square Salver is approximately 10″ in width, with a height of about 7¼”. When the two Salvers were produced, Fostoria Glass Company put a higher price tag on the Square Salver. Most of the time, but not always, it is more expensive to buy in today’s market than the Round Salver. The Round Salver was introduced first, around 1916. A few years later, the Square Salver was introduced. Both were kept in the production line until approximately 1982.
