Thrift Find: Beautiful Glass Tray / Cake Plate

Isn't this glass tray beautiful? My mom found it out thrifting and it was $2.00!!! I love it! The etching comes through kind of white on the picture but it isn't. It almost seems "wedding-ish" in a way but I will love it for pretty, festive foods and occasions. I think I will be using it most for a cake plate for when I have cakes that I want to have room for a garnish of fruit, etc. around the base. It is well used and has scratches on it. To me, that adds to the piece. I daydream about the lady (ladies?) that have used this to serve off of; and I daydream about all that have enjoyed treats off of this beautiful tray. This tray is heavy also; I love the solid feel of it. What else can I do with this piece you creative people?


  1. I thought I left a message but I don't see it, so here goes again...:-)

    Thanks for visiting my blog, The Comforts of Home. I don't know if you know it or not but I have another blog called Lavender Hill Studio. Most of the olders posts there are about my home and decorating. I couldn't transfer them over when I started The Comforts of Home. So of you want to see more of my home go to and look at the older posts.

    Love your pretty cake plate. That was a great bargain!

  4. Vanessa, is it YOU? Good gosh your new blog is beautiful! I am now a follower and will enjoy returning again and again. Thanks for making a comment on my blog :)

  5. I have a set of antique crystal that was my grandmother's. When I first got it my mother suggested seeing if there were dessert plates to match. There were and they were/are fabulous!! We have added them to our collection. There were several other pieces that also match manufactured by Tiffin. Your thrift cake plate find reminds me of her pattern and there may well be other pieces available!!Southern girls!!
