I love the old siver plated trays (showing a 13" wide one at the bottom). This setting has 5 plates. The bottom is the charger (silver plate tray) then a plate with silver stripes from Target, this year's Christmas plate collection. On top of that is a real bargain! At the dollar tree store they have (like a thick foil catering grade at 9 3/4") a smaller silver toned charger type tray for one dollar. I have that Dollar tree tray on top of the silver striped plate, then a white lacy plate, then my green leaf/flower plate. This is one way to add a metal layer when you want more bling to a setting.Another setting using this 9 3/4" silver toned charger tray.Picture shows them taken apart. You can see my silver plate tray is starting to tarnish here, IRL the two trays look more alike than in this picture.Here is the luncheon size with 8" plate on top of that 9 3/4" charger tray, then picture below that takes the setting apart. And here I used this small tray for a backdrop in my china cabinet, and the best part is no polishing! Helps to reflect light and balance where you might have silver displayed in another part of the cabinet and it is not a symmetrical display.
