An elegant antique glass cake stand / salver featuring a feminine hand that wraps around the pedestal. This is clear crystal glass with stippling above and below the hand. We also see beading along the bottom gallery.
This particular piece was made by Hobbs Brockunier & Co. This is the Tree of Life with Hand pattern and was dates to c. 1879.
Measuring 10 inches in diameter and 8 1/4 inches tall, we find this to be in very nice condition showing some scratches on the plate, and a tiny 1/8 inch shallow nick on the bottom foot behind the row of beads. This area goes undetected unless you turn the stand upside down. There are two tiny manufacturing bubbles on the plate as well. In fabulous condition considering it's age and ready to grace your table.
