Cake Stands

The earliest form of cakestand is the footed salver which was introduced during the 17th century. These have a circular flat surface supported by a silver stand.

Purpose made Antique Silver Cake Stands appeared in the second half of the 19th century and are usually multitiered plates supported by a silver stand. These are used to serve little cakes, scones and biscuits for high tea and can still be seen in posh hotels for serving traditional English tea.

Also popular are the large, flat mirrored stands used by hotels and bakeries for wedding cakes.
