Lombardia Footed Bowl - 21 cm Diameter - Handcrafted in Italy - Pewter
This iconic-looking footed bowl, handcrafted from pewter in Italy, is perfect for serving fruits, cheeses and of course, cakes - from sponge or scones to cheesecake or cup cakes; this elegant footed stand, is striking and 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 dramatic stand also suits fruits and cheeses - it will 'lift' your cheese course to new heights of enjoyment, especially if you allow any accompanying grapes or berries to languidly trail off the edges - beautiful.
