Wooden Charger Plates

Charger plates, otherwise known as "under plates" or "chop plates" have been popular since the 19th century. In recent years, there has been a surge in the use of decorative charger plates for events such as parties, weddings, holiday gatherings and other special events.

Larger than actual food plates, charger plates provide an elegant, aesthetic resting place onto which food-bearing dishes and bowls are placed. Charger plates are used mostly for soups, salads and first courses. Most caterers and restaurants agree that charger plate etiquette requires the removal of the charger when dessert is served.

Please note: Stained plates have a antiqued look, making them stand out from uniform, plain, mass produced plates.

If there is a different style of plate or different finish you'd like, please contact us for a special order at: 1-800-828-0359 or service@hofcraft.com. Minimum order: 12.
