This wonderful Blue Italian 2-tier cake stand by Spode is a delightful way to showcase all manner of delicious cakes and tasty pastries to everyone at the table. Its two levels add a bit of height as well as additional room for sumptuous treats and renders the piece a striking centrepiece during dessert. The cake stand is made from stunning blue and white porcelain, a material first manufactured in England in 1816 where it was adorned with various motifs of the Italian countryside. The border of the pieces came to take on an Imari Oriental pattern as an elegant border for the artistic renderings within. The entire Blue Italian collection includes all manner of porcelain pieces such as plates, bowls, cups and serving dishes — everything you need to create a beautiful table setting for nearly any occasion.
