Tasteful porcelain plates 

While drinking vessels and bowls have been used since early times, plates have only been used as tableware since the 16th century. At that time, plates were still the preserve of the nobility and clearly belonged to the upper echelons of table culture and were inaccessible to ordinary people. This has since changed. 

Today, plates are an indispensable part of table culture worldwide and are available in a wide variety of styles. Dinner plates, bread plates, pizza plates - no meal is complete without the crockery with the characteristic indentation. 

If you want to serve your meals in style, you should make sure that the plates match the table decorations. Coloured plates, discreet plates, round plates or square plates - there is a large selection of plates in a wide variety of shapes, colours and designs. This makes it all the easier to put together your own personalised porcelain dinner service and impress at the table.

 

Special plates from Rosenthal

Each tableware collection from Rosenthal contains different plates for different courses; the classic dinner plate, flat pizza plates or selected place plates in highly decorative designs. 

Lovingly decorated, the plates of masterful services such as "Brillance Bone China" or "Maria" exude a touch of nostalgia. Opulent table decorations are given the finishing touch with the extravagantly decorated porcelain plates from "Medusa Amplified" or "Signum". Even the understated white plate has a firm place in Rosenthal's extensive range. 

From golden plates for exceptional menus to classic tableware and contemporary wall plates as exclusive accessories, Rosenthal plates meet all the requirements of modern tableware.

 

The right plates for every occasion

Plates are generally divided into deep and shallow plates. Flat plates include the common dinner plate, while deep plates are suitable for soups, salads, desserts and many other dishes. Both deep and flat plates set elegant accents in a timeless design. Combined with the matching cutlery, you can guide your guests through the meal in style. 

Patterns, fashionable colours or lovely decorations give each plate a unique look, making the dinnerware a wonderful table and home accessory.

 

  • Flat plates

The common dinner plate is probably one of the best-known representatives of flat plates. Large plates made of porcelain or stoneware are often used for main meals, while smaller plates are used for desserts, bread or breakfast.

  • Dinner plate

This type of plate, also known as a dinner plate, is the universal all-rounder among plates. It can be used for starters, main courses or desserts, as a porcelain dinner plate is suitable for many meals. 

This common plate is flat and, depending on the model, has either no rim or a narrow rim. It is placed on top of the place setting.

  • Bread plate

Bread plates are very small plates, so that often only one slice of bread or baguette fits on them. They have a slightly concave shape and are placed on the left above the place setting. Combined with a piece of herb butter or drizzled with a little oil, the bread served has an appetising effect.

  • Breakfast plates

Breakfast plates are similar to conventional dinner plates, but are significantly smaller. In some dinnerware sets, the breakfast plates also serve as dessert plates and cake plates. Due to their flat shape, they are versatile and can also be used for small portions of a main meal.

  • Service plates

Service plates are very wide and flat plates. Dinner plates, soup plates and dessert plates are placed on them. A place plate protects the table setting from crumbs and leftovers and is firmly anchored in elegant table culture due to its high decorative value.

  • Pizza plate 

As the name suggests, these plates are ideal for serving crispy pizzas. Thanks to its flat, rimless shape, the pizza can be cut and served effortlessly.

  • Deep plates

Soups, pasta, desserts, stews - there are many different ways to use a deep plate. Thanks to their mostly round shape, these plates look elegant and timeless on table settings. 

As a plate set or individually, these plates form the perfect basis for gallantly realising culinary ideas. 

  • Soup plate 

This plate with a high rim is flat and rounded so that creamy soups, vegetable broths or hearty stews can be served without spilling over. Although they are usually used for starters or main courses, porcelain soup plates are also suitable for sweet soups as desserts. They are placed on the dinner plate.

  • Salad plate

Salad plates are a direct relative of the soup plate. They are not as deep as soup plates, but deep enough to prevent the salad dressing from overflowing. Alternatively, salad plates can also be used as dessert plates for cold bowls, ice cream or pudding.

  • Pasta plate

The shape of a pasta plate is unique: it is very large and has a steep recess in which the pasta can be generously arranged. Pasta and pasta sauce stay in place in these deep plates and do not cool down so quickly.

 

Modern porcelain and stoneware plates

Porcelain tableware is often passed down from generation to generation and is highly valued in the area of table culture. It differs from stoneware in terms of material, firing temperature and glaze. Stoneware plates are almost impermeable to water even without glaze and have a rustic charm. 

Modern porcelain plates are characterised by a simple design and restrained colours. Fashionable stoneware models, on the other hand, are characterised by a natural-looking design with subtle textured patterns. 

Today's table settings often feature a combination of timeless porcelain crockery and fashionable stoneware pieces - giving the dining table a vibrant, lively character.
