  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Charger 
  a  bowl  or  deep  dish.  The  silver  vessels  given  by  the  heads  of 
  the  tribes  for  the  services  of  the  tabernacle  are  so  named  (Num. 
  7:13,  etc.).  The  charger"  in  which  the  Baptist's  head  was 
  presented  was  a  platter  or  flat  wooden  trencher  (Matt.  14:8,  11; 
  Mark  6:25,  28).  The  chargers  of  gold  and  silver  of  Ezra  1:9  were 
  probably  basins  for  receiving  the  blood  of  sacrifices.
