Regular price $75.00


Description:  Entertain in retro with this mid-century, aluminum cake serving keeper.  This Kromex retro cover, most likely from the 1950’s with raised white “cake” lettering on black with an aluminum knob, displays nicely with a retro feel.  It sits on a solid, aluminum platter marked “Kensington” a new giftware line developed in the 1930’s by Alcoa Aluminum Company.
