An antique glass cake basket stand that is decorated with an etched leaf and berry pattern. The pedestal has a lovely squared pattern and it sports a pewter handle. This is perfect to hold a small cake, fresh fruit, small pastries or your breakfast doughnuts.
This was manufactured by Ripley & Co and is known as their pattern number NR10. This particular pattern was made c. 1880's.
Measuring 9 1/4 inch in diameter at the top. It stands 5 inches tall on its own and the handle adds another 5 inches when upright. You'll see the typical antique glass bubbles and a few age related fine scratches. There is a small flake off the pedestal base rim on the inside so you do not see this unless you turn it upside down.
