Pressed Cake Stand Reissued
L.E. Smith has reissued a hobnail clear glass cake stand. This 10½-inch diameter piece was first made by Smith from a new mold in the early 1970s.
Although the hobnail or dewdrop-like design loosely resembles Victorian patterns, there is no 19th century counterpart to this piece. It first appeared when Smith made their new mold in the 70s. The new cake stands sold for around $50 retail.
