Mid Century French White Ironstone Raised Cake Stand or Compotier
This is an excellent quality French white ironstone raised cake stand or compote dish, dating from the mid 20th Century.
It is hard to source these smaller footed cake stands or compotiers in plain white ironstone. This one, sourced from France, is in excellent condition. They are great for use as a kitchen centrepiece, for fruit like lemons and limes, or as a smaller cake stand.
This footed compote has a simple, classic shape.
It is in mint condition, with no cracks, crazing or chips and just some odd age spots and very light surface scratches and nibbles to the base rim from use. There are some small, minor firing faults to the top, the most obvious of these in the centre. However, these aren’t overly notable and don’t detract. It is, in summary, a very nice piece of vintage French kitchenalia which is both useful and displays well.
