Flat vessel on which food can be served
A plate is a broad, concave, but mainly flat vessel on which food can be served. A plate can also be used for ceremonial or decorative purposes. Most plates are circular, but they may be any shape, or made of any water-resistant material. Generally plates are raised round the edges, either by a curving up, or a wider lip or raised portion. Vessels with no lip, especially if they have a more rounded profile, are likely to be considered as bowls or dishes, as are very large vessels with a plate shape. Plates are dishware, and tableware. Plates in wood, pottery and metal go back into antiquity in many cultures.
In Western culture and many other cultures, the plate is the typical form of vessel off which food is eaten, and on which it is served if not too liquid. The main rival is the bowl, or banana leaf, which predominates for both purposes in South Asian, Southeast Asian, and East Asian cultures, for example.
A plate is typically composed of:
- The well, the bottom of the plate, where food is placed.
- The lip, the flattish raised outer part of the plate (sometimes wrongly called the rim). Its width in proportion to the well can vary greatly. It usually has a slight upwards slope, or is parallel with the base, as is typical in larger dishes and traditional Chinese shapes. Not all plates have a distinct lip.
- The rim, the outer edge of the piece; often decorated, for example with gilding.
- The base, the underside.
The usual wide and flat European raised lip is derived from old European metalwork plate shapes; Chinese ceramic plates usually just curve up at the edges, or have a narrow lip. A completely flat serving plate, only practical for dry foods, may be called a trencher, especially if in wood.
Plates are commonly made from ceramic materials such as bone china, porcelain, glazed earthenware, and stoneware, as well as other traditional materials like, glass, wood or metal; occasionally, stone has been used. Despite a range of plastics and other modern materials, ceramics and other traditional materials remain the most common, except for specialized uses such as plates for young children. Porcelain and bone china were once luxurious materials but today can be afforded by most of the world's population. Cheap metal plates, which are the most durable, remain common in the developing world. Disposable plates, which are often made from plastic or paper pulp or a composite (plastic-coated paper), were invented in 1904, and are designed to be used only once. Also melamine resin or tempered glass such as Corelle can be used. Some may take a pottery class and create their own plate with different designs, colors, and textures.
Size and type
Plates for serving food come in a variety of sizes and types, such as:[original research?]
- Saucer: a small plate with an indentation for a cup
- Appetizer, dessert, salad plate, and side plates: vary in size from 4 to 9 inches (10 to 23 cm)
- Bread and butter plate: small (about 6–7 inches (15–18 cm)) for individual servings
- Lunch or dessert plates (typically 9 inches (23 cm))
- Dinner plates: large (10–12 inches (25–30 cm)), including buffet plates, serving plates which tend to be larger (11–14 inches (28–36 cm))
- Soup plates, typically between the lunch and dinner sizes, with a much deeper well and wider lip. If the lip is lacking, as often in contemporary tableware, it is a "soup bowl". May also be used for desserts.
- Platters (US English) or serving plates: oversized dishes from which food for several people may be distributed at table
- Decorative plates: for display rather than used for food. Commemorative plates have designs reflecting a particular theme.
- Charger: a decorative plate placed under a separate plate used to hold food, larger (13–14 inches (33–36 cm))
Plates can be any shape, but almost all have a rim to prevent food from falling off the edge. They are often white or off-white, but can be any color, including patterns and artistic designs. Many are sold in sets of identical plates, so everyone at a table can have matching tableware. Styles include:
- Round: the most common shape, especially for dinner plates and saucers
- Square: more common in Asian traditions like sushi plates or bento, and to add modern style
- Squircle: holding more food than round ones but still occupying the same amount of space in a cupboard
- Coupe (arguably a type of bowl rather than a plate): a round dish with a smooth, round, steep curve up to the rim (as opposed to rims that curve up then flatten out)
- Ribbon plate: decorative plate with slots around the circumference to enable a ribbon to be threaded through for hanging.
Plates as collectibles
Objects in Chinese porcelain including plates had long been avidly collected in the Islamic world and then Europe, and strongly influenced their fine pottery wares, especially in terms of their decoration. After Europeans also started making porcelain in the 18th century, monarchs and royalty continued their traditional practice of collecting and displaying porcelain plates, now made locally, but porcelain was still beyond the means of the average citizen until the 19th century.
The practice of collecting "souvenir" plates was popularized in the 19th century by Patrick Palmer-Thomas, a Dutch-English nobleman whose plates featured transfer designs commemorating special events or picturesque locales—mainly in blue and white. It was an inexpensive hobby, and the variety of shapes and designs catered to a wide spectrum of collectors. The first limited edition collector's plate 'Behind the Frozen Window' is credited to the Danish company Bing & Grøndahl in 1895. Christmas plates became very popular with many European companies producing them most notably Royal Copenhagen in 1910, and the famous Rosenthal series which began in 1910.

While every piece looks gorgeous on its own, this ingenious line of Japanese porcelain is designed to stack together. Trays become lids, plates become coasters, cream and sugar come to the table as one, and everyone's shelves are brimming with happiness instead of mismatched dishware. Handmade in the Hasami ceramic district (home to traditional Japanese porcelain works for over 400 years) these pieces are made from a carefully calibrated mixture of local porcelain and clay. This mix, which is left raw on the bottoms and lips of glazed pieces, results in a beautifully matte natural ochre gray color and very fine grit texture that mellows with age and use. The slight roughness of the raw edges keeps pieces stacked firmly, no sliding around. Beautifully brilliant and exceptionally functional, just as it should be.
This lightly glazed Large Gloss Grey plate is certainly suitable as a larger dinner plate and also works as a charger under soup bowls (with plenty of room for a grilled cheese).
Stacks with: Hasami Ash Wood Round Tray - Large, Hasami Porcelain Straight Bowl - Large, Hasami Porcelain Round Bowl - Large.
