Antique Late 19th Century Large Dutch Petrus Regout Plain White Ironstone Cake or Patisserie Stand
A lovely example of a scarce and highly sought after white ironstone patisserie stand, dating from the late 19th Century.
Carrying the mark of Petrus Regout of the Netherlands, this beautiful plain white cake stand dates from around 1880. It is a fantastic large size, measuring 34cm in width.
Ironstone stands like this would have commonly been used in patisseries or cake shops, as well as in butchers shops, to display the products available for sale.
They are now such desirable items to have and use around the home. They create a real centre piece or focal point for a table display and also are amazing items to have on display, perhaps as part of a kitchenalia collection, when not in use.
Aside from some very light staining and crazing on this piece, it is otherwise in very good condition considering it’s age. The piece has crazing all over, plus light staining and age spots where grease or dairy produce would have been in contact with the surface. On the whole, though, this is quite mild and the piece is on the whole very clean. There are some minor chips to the glaze around the edge of the base, no doubt caused by daily use in a shop. There is also a small firing fault on the base but this doesn’t detract. Structurally, the stand is very sound, with no cracks.
