Charger plates, also known as show plates or chargers, are placed under the dinner plate and serve to elevate the dining experience, lending a "charge" to your dining setting. Approximately 12" square, these are finished in a decorative woodgrain pattern and will accentuate the Spring or Summer seasonal feel of your tabletop. Merge them with some of our nests and birds to bring nature indoors. Also beautiful in the cooler months when coupled with pine or Autumnal harvest décor. Decorative use only, not for direct use with food.
