    The snack plates are great and I have hundreds of them that I’ve collected over the years. A glass slips into a compartment in the middle and you lay all your little snacks around it, mid glass height. You grip the plate where the glass slips through on the bottom.

    The plastic glitter glasses in the second photo weren’t meant to go with the snack trays but they do look excellent sitting in them.

    There’s a third ceramic bagel missing from the stack of two you have in the fourth photo. The two I have are both for pepper. Makes no sense that there would only be one salt bagel but there’s not room for two more on the little pole.

    The sweet roll and chocolate glazed donut in the next photo look completely real in person. I can’t tell you how many people have picked them up and tried to take a bite.

    I have never seen snack plates like those. They are really neat! It’s funny how certain things seem to accumulate in one part of the country but not another. I think the black plates look kind of like records stacked up on the type of player that plays multiple discs.
