What a spectacular presentation piece!
Handmade and hand-painted by Istanbul artisans, this stunningly ornate cake stand by Anatolia brings together both clear (dome) and iceberg-styled glass (cake plate) which is embossed with boldly inspirational Turkish detail.
While the gorgeous plate pressed pattern is filled in with gold paint from the underside, the gold dome's wide band is painted over a matching raised design.
An incredible beauty.
Hand wash only. No microwave or oven use.
Origin: Istanbul, Turkey; pre-owned
Dimensions: 12 3/4"W x 6 1/4"H (est.)
Condition: Great. There are no chips, cracks, stains or wear to the gold paint. A ripple effect is seen in areas to the dome paint from manufacturing. Some paint remains from emphasizing the clear glass pattern to the dome are noted; this is from the hand-detailing process and we do not see it as a flaw.
