Ivo - you are a STAR :!: I would never have guessed. However, it does explain the wear marks on the bottom of the "plate". Its always good to see examples from catalogues - so thank you.
Thanks Pamela for showing your decanter set on the tray - it displays it really well. I've had a little play around with a couple of French decanter sets that I have, using them in the same way. They don't look as good as yours, but at least I have found a use for the plate/tray
Peter - your plinth looks to be the same as mine (3" high x 6" diam. max). I have two of these now, and have used one to hold my Josef Inwald bowl. There is just the slightest play, with the diameter of the plinth being slightly larger than the base of the bowl, but it really displays the bowl beautifully (if a little high). I'm not sure what type of plinth would originally have been used with the bowl, but it looks better on this one, rather than having none at all.http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/glassie/josefinwald002.jpg
