circa: 1910 width: 11 height: 35 length: 10 This charming mahogany cake stand was handmade in Edwardian England around 1910. Today, after nearly a century of aging, the mahogany has developed a lovely patina that enriches the deep, lustrous complexion and pronounced grain of the wood to produce the timeless beauty that makes antiques like this one so special. The design is also interesting, with three 9'' round tiers that flip up when not in use, reducing the total depth of the stand by 2.5''. This stand has understandably sustained some superficial wear, including various scuffs, a veneer chip in one of the feet, and very minor, superficial texturing in the veneers (see photographs for details). Structurally, however, this stand remains as sturdy as ever, so overall condition is very good.
