I'm perplexed; what these actually are?
I think the confusion comes from several different uses I have seen them being used.
Daddy would keep these up high in the cabinet. He especially kept one on his nightstand.
Growing up he used it as a coaster to keep his cup of water that he took upstairs nightly. That was a ritual for him and Mom. Their Cup of water.
Reason for using this glass dish he didn't want to watermark the dresser. He also kept a paper towel underneath this saucer for extra security.
I actually thought they were ashtrays.
My Husband seems to think they are Tea Cup Saucers.
What do you think these are?
