Nice cake stand! I saw one a few weeks back in pink, wanted to buy it but it went way over my budget! The stand and button look very different though, and the flutes aren't there.

Jayne thanks!!
So, did Bagley do that pink?  Mine is not shiny on the inside it is frosted as well as on the outside btw.  That stand, the one I saw had more similarities with that (maybe the same?) apparently on a Bagley Cakestand but I couldn't check the link when I clicked on it to see if it really was. I'm sure my stand is original to the plate and I honestly don't think it's been off the plate before I unscrewed it.  And my green is near as darnit if not identical to what I think is a Bagley frog but if they didn't do pink then I guess that might be the decider  :-\

I too have one of these plates . I have it displayed with a few pieces of Uranium Bagley and it is a good colour match in different lights with the Bagley pieces. I perceive however as being a  much more solid plate than the other Bagley cake plates I have.
I picked up the plate by itself at a flea market so the stand is not original.

Thanks Meegs - I meant to reply but forgot, I took it outside yesterday in the sun, and I could see a tiny difference ion colour as well - I wasn't sure though whether that was the U factor in the one and not the other, and thank you for comparing to your plates :)

well it might be just that I never look for these things but here's another in pink and I'm getting suspicious - maybe wrongly.

Apparently with this one, according to the blurb, when you've finished with it you can just 'fold it up' and put it away  ;D

Why are you getting suspicious?
I think it's pretty handy that

It's nicely embellished with an ornate glass top.
Quite a handy embellishment for a cake stand!

well only because suddenly we have a collection of them.  And it's not been on the board before.   Also I have to admit to being astonished that the top of it is also frosted. I would have expected a good design to be frosted underneath and plain on top - but perhaps that is too complex a process in terms of producing the glass?
Having said that, it really does look as though my stand has never been off the plate in fairness.

It's probably just something nobody has ever bothered to ask about or just that you can't find the thread. A lot of stuff is frosted on top. It probably just means the whole thing was either dipped or blasted - much cheaper to do it all.
