Default "half a garnishe of tynne plates"

Googling for this doesn't help me, but the OED suggests that a garnish is a set of vessels for the table. This is from a Stuart will.

Can any one find a reference to such things? I wondered if they were the fancy decorated plates used at banquets - ie designed simply to hold sweetmeats: more decoration than use.
