Dolly Dear Birthday Cake #202-31 SOLD

Status: Sold
This birthday cake is a hard to find item from Dolly Dear, c. 1930. This particular cake is a birthday cake for a 3 year old toddler as it has 3 metal candles. It is made from all wood and has the typical Dolly Dear method of their particular paint application creating splendid designs of swirls and flowers. Dolly Dear created these unique designs with different number of candles, starting with one candle and ending, I believe up to around 10 or 12. The cake platter is also made from wood and the edges are decorated with a gold design. This particular item does show a little bit of wear and aging, but still a hard to obtain item. 1" high, 1 1/2" diameter at the bottom of cake plate. See Patty Cooper's new book, "Dolly Dear Dollhouse Accessories" which illustrates many wonderful pictures of these birthday cakes with candles.
