Blaue Blume Dessert Stand
The dessert stand has always been a tableware object of negligible necessity, a little altar for baked goods that can nevertheless be worshipped for its aesthetics, as any self-respecting collector will tell you. But this vintage lace-patterned Blaue Blume Dessert stand designed by Tina Tsang really does take the cake…
Made in the U.K. and available in all-white or “gold shoes” versions, it’s made of usable, sturdy (but hand wash only) earthenware despite the over-the-top kitschy design.
