A beautifully balanced piece, it measures 2 1/8 inches (5.5 cms) high and the bowl is 9 5/8inches (24.5 cms) in diameter with the bottom of the stand 5 inches (12.6 cms) in diameter. It weighs almost 1.4 lbs. The Christofle name and O. C hall marks are under the lip of the bowl.
The bowls rim is shaped with the famous Ondulations style ribbing. The bowl is one smooth piece and was very likely destined for presentation of small cakes such as petits fours , biscuits or fruit. It is in good condition overall with minor traces of surface wear, a very tiny dent on the top edge and one on the bottom edge, not very visible when the cake plate is displayed.
The Ondulations cake plate is one of the rarest and sleek pieces designed in the collection.
