Grandmother Pearl's Cake Plate

Mama, born in 1931, frequently served cakes on this platter during the years we three kids were growing up on the farm.  The platter originally belonged to her mother, who was born in 1891.  Through the years, I was concerned that that antique platter would be broken.  However, Mama continued to bake and serve on the platter.  Now, at 51, I'm the keeper of the platter.  (Notice all the dates...the platter is really old!) It sits in a place of honor in my home....I really should bake a cake and serve it on the platter...
