Lisa Larson Viking Ship Plaque
This is a unique commemorative Viking ship plaque was produced by Gustavsberg in the late 1960s/early 1970s and created by Lisa Larson. The top of the sail has "Handelsflottans Välfärdsråd" stamped in the clay, which roughly translates to "Merchant Navy Welfare Board." The back has a sticker with the same text, the incised "Lisa L Gustavsberg" stamp, and a hand-written note: "Idrottsveckan för sjöfolk i Lissabon," which roughly translates to "Sports Week for Seafarers in Lisbon," with the dates April 12 - April 18, 1970.
