A charger plate is a large, decorative base setting for which other dinnerware is placed on top of during formal occasions. They are meant to be purely decorative, never coming into contact with the actual food.
The plate is in good condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. There is a small amount of wear to the paint and gilt, consistent with age. The plate is marked with Flambeau China marks number 1 and 3 indicating production from the 1890s to early 1900s. Please inspect all photos, and don't hesitate to contact me if you need additional information.
There is a small hole in the back of the plate (see photo 6); a piece of wire can be threaded through the hole so the plate can be hung on the wall.
