Etsy Find: Dessert Please Cake Plate

You may not know this but Etsy, the online marketplace for handmade goods, also sells vintage items. When they first introduced vintage, I whined a little, saddened that it would no longer be 100 percent handmade. But, when I come across vintage items like this Dessert Please Cake Plate ($65), everything is okay in the world. You'll be hard pressed to find anything like this milk-glass beauty elsewhere, and if you do find a mass-produced version, retailers like Anthropologie will charge you upwards of $150 for it. I'd normally say that the combination of the rose garland, butterflies perched on top, raised polka dots, and teardrop doily plate are a bit too much, but this cake plate has a sort of Victorian, old-world charm that beguiles me.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I don't think this is vintage. My Mom bought this for me last year. Mine has three tiers and then the butterfly "cover." She got three sets- one for her, one for my sister-in-law, and one for me. It's made my I. Godinger.

i've seen tons of those around here - all mass-produced, though. i guess i worry about the things on top breaking off. i have a nice vintage glass cake-lifter-cum-punch bowl that is from the 1960s or something and i love it! i'd want a nice milk-glass base with a clear lid, i think. i always want to have a second one since i put all kinds of things in mine from leftover waffles to flat bread to cookies to cake, and i often have more than one thing to put in. no room for another one, though. :(

Absolutely gorgeous. I would never use it though.

Cute but I am so clumsy that I will need the durable plastic kind.
