Antique Early 20th Century Dutch White Ironstone Cake Stand by Societe Ceramique

antique early 20th century dutch societe ceramique large white ironstone cake patisserie butchers stand

A lovely example of a scarce and highly sought after white ironstone patisserie stand, dating from the early 20th Century.

Carrying the mark of the renowned Dutch makers, Societe Ceramique, this beautiful plain white cake stand dates from around 1900. It is a great useful size, measuring 31cm 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 staining and crazing on this piece, it is otherwise in very good condition considering it’s age. The piece has crazing all over, which is more notable where it has stained on the top of the stand and also around the base. On the whole, though, this staining is quite mild and adds a natural and unique timeworn charm to the piece. There are some minor scuff marks and age spots to the edge rim too, no doubt caused by daily use in a shop. However, structurally, the stand is very sound, with no cracks or chips. They are excellent display pieces even in their own right.

Width, 31cm; Height, 11cm
