Decorative Plate History:
To the first question- while plates were in use for a long time before they were thought of as art, they gained traction as an ornamental addition sometime in 14th century when merchants first brought porcelain to Europe from China.
These delicate dishes became popular collectibles among European nobility for their novelty, rarity and beauty. And once they came to be appreciated as art, an increasing number of plates were created for the express purpose of decoration.
