A charger plate is a large, decorative base setting for which other dinnerware is placed on top of during formal occasions such as catered events, weddings, upscale parties, banquets, or in fine dining restaurants. Also known as service plates, under plates, or chop plates, charger plates are merely decorative, and are not meant to come in direct contact with food. Charger plates provide an elegant way to serve multiple course meals, where each course is served in its own separate bowl or plate, and placed on top of the charger.
Charger plates are available in a variety of colors, materials, lengths/diameters, and shapes for you to choose from to match the décor, mood, and style of your particular event. Chargers are used in multiple course meals as an elegant way to serve salad plates, soup bowls, and main dinner entrees in order to create unique presentations for guests.
Food is not actually served on charger plates; they are often called underplates or chop plates. The word "charger" originated around 1275 - 1325 from the Middle English "chargeour". Formerly, a charger signified either a large platter or a large, shallow dish for liquids.
They are usually larger than most common dinner plates.
The charger plates is a tabletop accessory that is used as part of the place setting. Think of it as an elegant tray that is placed under the dinner plate for style rather than function. Sized slightly larger, the finish or color of the charger plate frames the dinnerware and enhances the table setting.
