|Seldom have I had less photographic success than when trying to get
a good photo of this cake stand! It is a darling stand, a typically plain
COLONIAL pattern, this one made by J. B. Higbee ca. 1910.
It is 9" in diameter and it is one of only a very few pattern glass cake
stands that is 'signed'. The Higbee "Bee" in molded into the center .
The outer edge is turned up slightly to hold the frosting on. $75.

hold a bundle of them or other fruit if you wish. the dish section is 9 1/4" long. $62
|This pattern is the 'fancy dancy' CORD DRAPERY aka Indiana Tumbler #350. Made in their factory in Greentown ca. 1890, it oozes Victorian design.
It is 10" in diameter and unfortunately it has several chips around the top edge, seen HERE, HERE, HERE & HERE. They really are not that obvious without close scrutiny but we need to point them out.
There is no damage to the base.
The chips lead to a half price value of $75.
|HAWAIIAN LEI aka GALA pattern is a special pattern made by the John Higbee Glass Co. ca. 1913. This cake stand is 9 1/4" in diameter and has the scarce company signature of an HIG Bee in the center. It has an uneven icing rim for some reason and it shows scratching from an unwise attempt to clean it with perhaps steel wool. It is appropriately devalued to $65 for that reason.|

flowers circling the center. Dalzell, Gilmore & Leighton Glass Co.

on this piece of glass! It is 11" in diameter with turned up points forming an intermittent icing lip & it has a wafer connection. **SOLD**
|Here is the creme de la creme in cake stands.
