This is a rarer and harder to find plate by the celebrated Danish ceramic artist, Bjorn Wiinblad (1918 - 2006). He was an important designer for the Rosenthal porcelain company, and in 1971 he started to design for them annual commemorative Christmas plates. He also worked for the Danish pottery Nymolle.
This is one of a pair of designs that he made for Nymolle to celebrate the 50th or Golden Anniversary of Imerco, Denmark's largest chain of stores selling housewares founded in 1928.
This plate is the pendant to my other Trend of Times design. NOW SOLD
Here, Wiinblad is looking at the same interior some 50 years later - and shows how items sold in Imerco have changed over the years.
The image shows a large family group - with all the children gathered in the same room - grandma (was she the racy Flapper in the earlier scene?) enters from the left carrying a tray with teapot and tea cups. Chinese globes are now hung from the ceiling. The scene must show a birthday party as a shower of gifts from Imerco are shown on the table and in boxes being opened by the little child lying on the floor.
Please see my other plate which forms a complementary image - and shows Imerco shoppers in the year 1928.
My plate has a little wire on the back to allow you to hang it on display - and of course is in perfect condition with no chips or damages.
Diameter is 19 cm.
I could post the pair for the price to post one.
These commemorative pieces are harder Wiinblad designs to source, and of course, are no longer being produced - and this is reflected in my asking price.
