The 9" Classicware Black Plastic Plate is a more upscale presentation when using a disposable plate for your next party or event. This item is made from rigid, durable plastic that won't chip, crack, or break while being handled. That makes it a much better alternative to using traditional plateware or fine china, both of which can be fragile. Your table setting will still be beautifully accented, though, with delicate fluted, scalloped border around the base. While this is a lovely item, it's completely disposable for a quick, convenient clean-up.
