Toscana Cake or Cheese Stand - 28 cm Diameter - Handcrafted in Italy - Pewter
Perfect for serving sponge or scones, cheesecake or cup cakes, this solid pewter cake stand, the smaller of a set of two, handcrafted in Italy, is simply elegant. A delicate, braided engraving detail around the edge gives this centrepiece a subtle decoration, making it special, yet not too fussy, leaving the drama to the food it is displaying.
As an evolution of the ritual of afternoon tea, in late Victorian times, there was a trend to display cakes at the table, elevating them upon a stem, so that they could be easily seen.
This fashion has continued, and the sight of a cake stand crowded with sweet tempting treats is an iconic one, promoting, literally, Pavlovian reflexes.
This beautifully understated stand also suits cheeses - it will 'lift' your cheese course to new heights of enjoyment, especially if you allow any accompanying grapes to languidly trail off the edges - beautiful.
The Ravenna Pewter Cover, sold separately, is the perfect companion to this striking stand, fitting snugly and reassuringly over the top of the delicious morsels on display, keeping them safe and fresh before serving; the gentle shine of the pewter lid enabling a 'ta dah!!!' moment.
