This 10 1/2" round serving platter is a white medium that I thought was a frosted glass, until I held it; I believe it is a ground stone or combination of glass and stone. The roses are raised, formed beautifully and the edge is lightly scalloped. The footed base is a 3 3/4" circle. This could be used as a cake plate, although the raised pattern might make it difficult to remove the cake; I would suggest using it for cookies, brownies or scones, or use it as a display plate for a wall or cabinet. I have a wide variety of serving platters listed here, and will combine orders for discount and shipping savings.
