The Emerson Charger measures 12″ in diameter. It can be used under a round plate and will add dimension to your table design. You can pair it with coordinating pieces in the same pattern in a 10″ dinner plate or 8″ salad plate. While most chargers are not considered food safe and are for decorative purposes only, the Emerson charger is made of china. It can be used for plating a meal. Chargers are rented with minimum quantities required.
