This very rare, antique, French, two tier cake stand would make a truly stunning addition to your country cottage kitchen or if you love the idea of recreating a 'traditional cream tea' for a Summer garden party then this pretty, delicate ‘shabby chic roses’ cupcake display stand is for you.
Lunéville Faience is one of the most famous French pottery manufacturers. It has been located in Lunéville, Lorraine, France since 1730. This Lunéville K & G (Keller et Guerin) mark dates from between 1880 and 1922.
The two antique white plates are both marked on the underside with the ‘Lunéville’ pottery mark.
The top plate measures 23.5cms/ 9¼" diameter and the bottom plate measures 30cms/ 11¾" diameter.
It weighs 1.4kgs/3lbs.
Both plates are decorated with the ‘roses’ design in the centre and have a ‘beaded’ detail to form a rim/border. It has a metal handle that can be unscrewed for ease of storage or transportation.
Considering its age it is in remarkable, near perfect condition. The top tier plate is showing some very fine ‘hairline’ cracks to the glaze, which is to be expected with its age and does not in any way detract from its beauty or functionality, it in fact adds to the charm and authenticity of this gorgeous item.
Taking these photos gave me a brilliant excuse to make some cupcakes!
