“Pleat & Panel” glass cake stand, c.1882

Early American Pattern Glass (aka EAPG) cake stand in the “Pleat & Panel” pattern made by¬† Bryce Brothers in Pittsburgh, PA, dates from 1882. It measures 6-3/4″ high and has a 9″ x 9″ top surface

A simple metal sleeve encases the broken stem after it snapped. This is one of the more simple, yet effective repairs I have seen

An identical cake stand below did not suffer the same fate as mine and sports an unscathed stem
