Just a Pretty Victorian Cake Plate



Hi everyone!

I wanted to show you this beautiful old cake plate I recently found.
Isn't it pretty? It is a "Parisian Center Lamode" china plate
Beautiful Victorian design and delicate colors.
"Warnanteed 22 K Gold" filigree. It does have a lot of crazing in it.
Although you can't read it, the back reads.. "Parisian Center Made in the U.S.A. Warrented 22 K Gold"
I have several large gorgeous plates like this one. The problem is, because the pretty design is in the center, when you use it, it always gets covered up! But, it's okay if the plate has hot gooey brownies on it! LOL

  32. Diann you are going to laugh! I have the entire set (service for 12) of this pattern! Unfortunately, my cake plate is not currently sporting any hot gooey brownies. I have had the set for 25 years. It is one of my favorite sets.

    Have a great week.
    Sincerely,
    Melinda

  42. Anonymous, I am not sure what value they have. I have never looked into. I ended up turning this plate into a cake stand and I sold it last winter. Sorry I am no help.
