Pressed glass plates.

Any ideas what this might be please? Just bought a set of six today - really nice and crystal like.  Fairly deep vertical and horizontal mitres.  Unable to find a match.

No sense of shape in that pic, is it flat? Coaster perhaps, size?

Its not quite flat  - slightly less than 1cm high.  Diameter is 5½".  Possibly used to hold a fruit bowl or large cup with a hexagonal shape base.
