Q: Going through my grandmother's estate I came across several heavy (Glass? Maybe crystal — not sure) small platters with grapes on them with a spot for a matching cup. I was wondering if the readers or anyone would have any idea what the use of these would be for? Tea perhaps?

Editor: Nate, I do believe this is a set intended for, yes, tea and cookies. A tea cup with a place to set your afternoon treat as well.

Readers, do you have anything like this? Ever seen one?
