Old Stuff

I don’t know about you but I just LOVE old stuff! I found this today for only $3.00 and I just could not pass it up. In fact I picked it up and checked it out and then decided, I don’t need this, I have a Tupperware one and where would I store this one? That is AFTER I figured out that it MUST BE an old aluminum cake taker. I put it back on the shelf and walked away and went through the whole store with THIS thing on my mind! I had to go back over there and get it. Hardly no one was in the store at the time thank goodness or it would have been gone. I thought it was so fun! Our daughter got home from work and I showed it to her and she said, just wait until our next eat out at work! I’ve got to take this with a cake in it! lol  I’ve never seen one like this before. I’ve seen the tops of them with red handles and the ladies would sit the cake on a plate and put the top over the cake but I’ve never seen the bottom and the top together like this. I just think it’s the coolest thing!

Hubby was like, it’s beat up and bent up and I was like, Y yeah, it’s been used! lol The top was bent in a little but I pushed it back out.

Anyway I just had to share it with you all that love old stuff like I do.

Isn’t it the coolest thing?

My Mama had one of those. If I remember correctly hers had another piece to it. You could put a pie in the bottom, put the other round flat piece on that fitted in some sort of grove and then sit a cake on top of that. You could then carry a pie and a cake in the same container. By the height of yours I'm wondering if it originally had the middle piece.
Thanks so much for sharing this! Mississippi
