No, but here's some pictures of plates.
Starting with this medieval trencher bread plate table setting made of wood. These plates were originally made of bread and you ate the plate after you finished what was served on it, throwing any leftover bones to the dogs or kids around the table.

That is similar to the Ethiopian Mosob Plate, shown here with Ethiopian food served on injera bread. The bread has a sharp sourdough flavor.

Ethiopian traditional Mosob or 'table plate' with the bread plates on top.
I was afraid that dining at an Ethiopian restaurant would mean getting a UNICEF care package, but the vegetables and various stewed items were good. I liked the Ethiopian beer and coffee, too. And eating the plate is fun.

File 151937060970.jpg - (425.50KB , 2231x2266 , space Jupiter south pole 1.jpg )
Another interesting plate design? No, an image of Jupiter's south pole.
This map of Jupiter is the most detailed global color map of the planet ever produced. The round map is a polar stereographic projection that shows the south pole in the center of the map and the equator at the edge. It was constructed from images taken by Cassini on Dec. 11 and 12, 2000, as the spacecraft neared Jupiter during a flyby on its way to Saturn.

The map shows a variety of colorful cloud features, including parallel reddish-brown and white bands, the Great Red Spot, multi-lobed chaotic regions, white ovals and many small vortices. Many clouds appear in streaks and waves due to continual stretching and folding by Jupiter's winds and turbulence. The bluish-gray features along the north edge of the central bright band are equatorial "hot spots," meteorological systems such as the one entered by NASA's Galileo probe. Small bright spots within the orange band north of the equator are lightning-bearing thunderstorms. The polar region shown here is less clearly visible because Cassini viewed it at an angle and through thicker atmospheric haze. https://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/imagegallery/image_feature_539.html

Hm! Perhaps a series of dining plates featuring polar photos of the planets of the Solar System can sell at the NASA gift store...
- NASA’s Juno space probe took these photos that were combined to show the whole gas giant lit by the far away sun.

Sappenpanzer Gesichtsmaske
Literally “sapper’s armor facemask”. Designed in the German Empire, used there and occasionally in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Replica manufactured by Weapons Specialists Ltd.
An extremely heavy piece of hardened steel used as part of static soldiers’ gear. The mask was able to protect sentries, machine gunners and famously snipers from rifle fire, and on top of that was usually painted with camouflage patterns to break their silhouettes. https://qsy-complains-a-lot.tumblr.com/post/180553880009/sappenpanzer-gesichtsmaske-literally-sappers

File 156781507462.png - (519.71KB , 560x870 , UK WW1 armor EOB Standard Model Breastplate 1916-1.png )
British EOB armor
Designed by the Munitions Inventions Board c.1915-17.
Steel breastplate and additional plates in canvas, 40-layers silk neckguard also wrapped in canvas.
The Standard Model Breastplate 1916-17 was produced and issued in large number starting in 1917, although there were never enough of them to equip more than 2% of the British army. These protections were developed following a studies of wounds received by soldiers on the front, showing that beside extremities the neck body and head received an equal amount of hurt. Although even the slimmest amount of head protection could save a life, making a body armor which advantages outdid its encumbrance.

File 156781556456.jpg - (19.55KB , 800x600 , UK WW1 armor EOB 40-layers silk neckguard wrapped .jpg )
I read years ago how thick layers of silk proved effective in bulletproof vests.
In the late 1800s, both Japan and Korea developed some of the first modern bulletproof vests when they discovered that 30 layers of silk fabric could stop the black powder bullets of the day. This "soft armor"Âť laid the foundation for numerous inventors who tried to improve upon the idea as firearms became more powerful.
A priest from Chicago named Casimir Zeglen, with the help of fellow inventor Jan Szczepanik, devised a special way to weave a 1.6mm steel plate between four layers of silk. Zeglen claimed his 1/8" thick, 1/2 lb. vest could stop a .44 caliber—and he proved it when he volunteered to be shot before a live audience in New York City. When he was struck by the bullet at only 10 paces, he said he felt just "a tap." Zeglen and his "bullet proof cloth" became an overnight sensation. Egged on by the positive publicity, Zeglen left the priesthood in order to pursue his new business venture. https://mentalfloss.com/article/24039/brief-history-bulletproof-vests

Sadly, he never made his fortune, in part due to bad timing and bad luck. When the U.S. Military tested his invention, they found that it was too hot and too expensive thanks to the amount of silk required. Undaunted, Zeglen then offered one to President McKinley in the hopes it might spur interest. After contacting the White House, Zeglen was told he could meet the President in a month, as McKinley was going to be too busy traveling. Two weeks later in Buffalo, McKinley was shot and killed by an assassin's bullet that ripped through his abdomen. Zeglen's vest would have easily stopped the .32 caliber round.

Zeglen did manage to get Archduke Franz Ferdinand to accept one of his vests.

Unfortunately, Ferdinand was killed while wearing it. The kill shot hit him in the neck, well above the vest itself, but it didn't matter—the bad publicity didn't help and Zeglen was soon out of business.
