Moorcroft Chargers

Moorcroft Blue Finches ChargerA charger plate is a large plate that is placed at each table setting.  The main dinner plate can then be placed on it.  They are intended to enhance the decoration of any table setting.  They are most often made of porcelain but as they do not come into contact with any food it is possible for them too be made from a variety of different decorative materials.

It is believed that the word ‘charger’ derives from the old English word ‘chargeour’ which has the meaning ‘that which is loaded’ or ‘to load.’ The French have a similar old word, ‘chargoir.’  It is thought that Charger plates came into fashion in the 1800s.

Moorcroft chargers are very decorative and are embellished with some of the most attractive designs that Moorcroft has produced. Some will be used for the table as noted above but many will be used as an ornament for display purposes.
