This item was made in the 1940’s in the USA. It is a piece of sandwich glass and is a pale yellow. Its sturdy and in great condition. No chips, nicks or cracks. A wonderful Lyre Harp and scroll patterning on the entire top plate, pedestal and base. Stands 5" tall with a 10" diameter plate. Perfect for a wedding or a bridal shower. Great for the holidays. A Birthday cake would look great on this cake stand. I try to describe items as accurately as possible.
