I try loading both pictures. I see only the hallmark was attached in my original request. See if this cake plate.jgp will give you a view of the plate. Its very nice and no chips or cracks. the glass is very clear. The piece is very heavy. glass is very detail with edging and large ball of glass on bottom of the plate next to the silver stand. Note: the marking picture has a small speck on right side of shied letter. There was something on the bottom and I wipe off. no spots on the silver. I clean the stand years ago and cleans up beautifully. will you be able to tell me if there a value to the item as well. I found the plate at a thrift store about 10 years ago.

Hi the mark on the silver stand is sterling for Edinburgh England. the cake plate looks to be crystal. The set would be 250.00 the sand alone 150.00 and the plate that looks to fit the stand is 100.00 together it looks like a very nice and usable set for dinners and parties. Thank you for the photos and coming to just answer. if I may be of further service please let me know.
