Elle Plate

A small plate by the Elle pottery studio.  A few of the typical characteristics of this studio were the red color of the clay; the almost watercolor-look of the glazes; and the unglazed lines that make up some of the decoration, probably done with the wax resist method (correct me if I'm wrong).

The back is marked with Elle, Norway, some shape or design numbers, and possibly the artist's initials (it looks like a stylized TF), although notice that "Elle" is not written the same as on the vase in my earlier post.
