    I found this amazing cake stand and had to have it! It seems to have a very very pale purple hue to it and some bubbling throughout. Is it EAPG? I am a new collector and am not able to find one similar in research. It has a pretty "scallopped" base and a flower pattern in the top when looking down at it that is formed by the stem. It does not have a "ringing" when tapped, like a nice crystal. Can anyone help identify this piece? Is it really an EAPG? Or just a vintage piece? Thanks so much!

      The cake plate Whiz TallCakes should know! Welcome to CW

      Yes, I believe it is EAPG; the manganese content is consistent with EAPG. But this is one of the many unknowns. The one I have like this is one of the largest in my collection at 12-3/4" OD x 9=1/2" H.

      Thanks so much for the great information TallCakes! It's a great piece! I really enjoy looking for the EAPG, it's so awesome to find these gems. I hope to get better at recognizing pieces!

      you're very welcome. These plain patterns are often the hardest to attribute. This one shares similar features of the 'Plain Pattern' by Co-Operative Flint Glass c1907, but haven't found anything definitive. These large plain cake stands are often called baker's salvers/stands, as they were used in bakeries; the surface scratches seem consistent with daily use at a bakery.
