My suggestion is to use a coated hanger, not one that is straight metal as it is a little smoother and protects your plate from getting rust marks on it.

Are you sure you want something like this holding a nice plate on your dining room table? What is on the back of the plate for your guests to see? I would think it would look like just what it is - a bent up wire clothes hanger.
Maybe somewhere in a corner where the plate may not get broken if someone closed a door too hard and the stand/plate took a wobble,

I know most sturdy ones are kinda expensive but still may be your best choice if the plate or bowl means very much to you.
The process involves taking needle nose pliers and untwisting a wire hanger. Bend the hanger in half and turn up the two ends.
