These are big, heavy glass plates. I ordered them for use as chargers and they sparkle really nicely under my more formal China. They are so pretty that I have have been using them as big platters to serve more casual meals family style from. People have commented on how beautiful they are. As for packaging - I was scared one or two would arrive cracked so I ordered 14 in total (to have a complete set of 12). To my surprise, they arrived in three separate boxes, looking like 16-inch overstuffed white pillows that were incredibly well taped. We ended up having to buy box cutters to get each open. After opening 10 we declared a break. We had two entire boxes full of packaging materials. Was this excessive? If you consider that not one of them was nicked and my mail service is not known for it's gentle handling, then no. I would order again.
This is a beautiful charger. It adds a very nice touch to the table. Since it is glass and food safe, it can also be used as an appetizer platter - it would make pigs in the blanket look elegant!
This charger is glass -- not plastic -- for this price. The charger has a circular ridge on the back side of the plate with the face side being smooth. The edge of the plate is a glittery gold. It is exactly as pictured. Creates a great tablescape. Do not hesitate to buy!
