This plate was a recent antique store bargain ($3!). I knew very little about it, but at that price I had to take it home. The plate was produced by Nymolle of Denmark, and the design by Danish artist Bjørn Wiinblad features a woman (Louise) and her two cats. I love this stylized drawing that just screams "Scandinavian pottery" to me, with so many little details like the flowers on her hat and on the ground.
The back is marked Nymolle, Denmark, the name of the design - Louise, and the artist's signature. The artist signature is also on the front of the plate.
