This my set of 'Sensation' cake stands by Adams and Company. The pattern is also known as 'Thousand Eye'. This is a shallow disk hobnail pattern, but unlike many hobnail pattern which are arranged in a staggered fashion, the hobs in this pattern are arranged concentrically (as on the plate) or in rows and columns (as on the stems). The space between the hobs is a tiny pyramid. The pattern has three knobs on the stem which differentiate the Adams' 'Thousand Eye' form the one by Richards and Hartley. Colors shows are honey amber, sapphire blue and rich amber.
