Description: This very flat plate should not be confused with chargers or chop plates. Its 9 3/4″ size is appropriate for a cake whereas chop plates are considerably larger and heavier and are used to serve meats, think lamb chops or pork chops. Sometimes chop plates are called chargers but chargers are defined as bigger than dinner plates. Chargers have a different use as they go under dinner plates or soup bowls and serve as decorative accents and should not be used as plates for foods.They dress up dinner tables.
