Hand-blown Color Glass Cake Stand
Pretty in pastel.
There’s a reason these cake stands look like they were plucked straight from yesteryear: They're inspired by their maker’s grandmother "Big Mama," who used to scour antique shops in search of colored glass—then show off her finds at Sunday dinners laden with dreamy desserts. These gems were all hand-blown in Poland by artisans, in pastel shades we could gaze at for days. Now, if you’re like us and can’t decide what to bake up first…we suggest vanilla pound cake for starters (it was one of Big Mama's specialties).
