    I believe the square (2nd) one is shown on the Home Page as Fostoria American...unique in that it has a slight list when seen from another angle.

    The first one has the open loops, like a skirt around the edge.

    Both have the open or "rum" well to catch excess icing or whatever. No markings on either that I have found.

      both of these are by Colony Glass and probably from around the 1970s or so. The round one I've seen IDed as "Criss-Crss & Dot". Haven't found a name for the square stand but have seen it with the Colony label.

      Peavie, While I do not know the manufacturer/s who made your cake salvers, I can tell you they are of approximately mid-20th century production.

      The square one is not Fostoria's American. The American pattern is composed of small three dimensional cubes, rather than flat squares/diamonds as on your cake salver. I've seen punch sets in this pattern where the handles on the cups are open diamond shapes. Quality, shapes, and design point toward the 1950s/60s.

      Here is a photo of a Fostoria American square cake salver:

      Hope this helps.

      update to your IDs. The round stand is Plymouth Thumbprint by McKee/Thatcher from mid 1950s. The square stand is Gazebo by Indiana Glass made for Colony.

      Belated thanks, TallCakes. I have been out-of-net for over six months...Husband had three bypasses and an aortic valve replacement 2 Jan...contracted a staff infec which attacked the new valve, and that now is scheduled for replacement on 2 July.
      Please know I do enjoy reading your well-researched and informative comments.

      you are very welcome Peavie : ) And I hope your husband does well with the new surgery and makes a quick recovery. I'm going in for a right shoulder total joint replacement tomorrow and am hoping for the best.

      Hope your surgery went well and pain is minimal. Thanks!
