I've searched Pamela's site and various other options and I've not been able to find this pattern...or I've missed it.  Glows beautifully, frosted green glass, marked epns stand and nice centre button to screw the stand on. Quite large at 9 3/4" diameter.  Any help much appreciated  :) many thanks

I think this is good quality, the glass is quite solid and a good thickness and it reminds me a little of the Bagley Spinette I have.  Could this be Bagley?  I have searched and not been able to find the pattern match though  :-\

It wouldn't be impossible. Not everything seems to have been documented or at least not found. What's the hole like when you take the stand off? The size is about right and the number of crimps is OK for similar Bagley plates. Do you have anything to colour match to?

ok I took the stand off - it's the first time I think it's ever been off - the stand has a long screw and the silver plated cap on it that the screw protrudes from is bright silver :)  the hole in the bowl is neat round and perfect.  I used to have a small Queen's Choice? bowl I think it is called, i n green , don't know what's happened to it but it was that mint green colour butnot uranium.  I found the little flower frog that I think must have come with that bowl and it's a similar mint green. Unfortunately the flower frog is clear glass not frosted and not uranium, so it's quite difficult to be sure it's an absolute match, as the cakestand has a more intense colour to it presumably because of the uranium, slightly warmer green.  But did anyone else use this curious minty green?  I have a few other odd bits or green pressed glass in the garage which I use for plants and things outside, and none are the green of this.
When I did a google search of Bagley Uranium Frosted green glass, google images came up with a frilled cake stand that had a similar but not the same, pedestal.  But couldnt' click on the image to show it unfortunately.

There are other items in minty green but it's generally one of my pointers for Bagley. Does the hole have a preformed ring round it possibly only obvious by feel on the back now?
This item is not uncommon and a spot-on match for Bagley U green but un-ID'd

Hi Christine
no I can't find a preformed circle.  The hole is very neat though.  I would say it doesn't look as bluey green as yours does on my monitor but I'm still fairly sure it is Bagley uranium frosted  :-\
Odd though that the pattern hasn't surfaced anywhere else.

I find myself wondering how a cake could have been put on this cake stand - given the surface is not flat.
It would just make a mess of any work a baker had done... so I'd have to eat the whole thing in one go. (I can't leave a cake looking untidy - same goes for an opened packet of biscuits or a broken bar of chocolate. Untidy.)

Three Wise Women would have asked for directions, arrived on time, delivered the baby, cleaned the stables and made a casserole...

And there WOULD have been peace on earth.

yes my other big bug bear is that they are only good for cup cakes, as if you tried to put a cake on it and cut it you wouldn't be able to.  I have a clear pressed one I used to use for Christmas cake and it had an upturned rim on the edge, really irritating to try and cut the cake with that there so I swapped to my well-designed flat surface amber Czechoslovakian one :)

What is this current trend for "cupcakes" all about? A silly little bit of sponge collapsing under half a ton of chemically coloured sugar, yuk!
Whatever happened to good old fairy cakes? A nice little bit of icing on top of a good bit of sponge, and half a glace cherry to finish it off prettily.  8)

we do fairy cakes - with butter icing and wings  ;D well my son does - every few days  ::) It's the only thing that keeps him occupied and costs us a fortune.
Cannot stand those huge iced things though
