A hand-painted square plate from Gustavsberg, a long-established Swedish tableware maker. The designer is Swedish mid-century master Stig Lindberg. Carnival is made by a method called faience firing, in which tin glaze is applied to red clay. Overall, this plate is thick and solid, and was basically made for the purpose of a decorative plate. There are multiple sizes in the series, including square and rectangular plates, but this one is the largest at 30 cm. There are several variations of the female porcelain plate, and this one depicts a black woman and wild birds from the tropics. Basically, there are many plates depicting white women at carnivals, and black women's paintings are extremely rare.

The back has a G mark hand sign indicating that it was made in Gustavsberg's workshop, and an E and a cross mark below it. The hand signature is by Stig Lindberg himself, and the painter signature below is the signature of the painter who painted this work.

Stig Lindberg

Stig Lindberg

Stig Lindberg (1916-1982)

Born in Umeå, the central city of northern Sweden. Originally from Stockholm's art school Konstfack ( Learn painting at Konstfack. He joined Gustavsberg in 1937 and gradually rose to prominence under the tutelage of his mentor, Wilhelm Koge. Twelve years later, in 1949, he succeeded Koge as the company's art director in charge of design.

Since then, Lindberg has released numerous works as a standard bearer of Swedish modernism in the mid-20th century. During Lindberg's time, the Gustavsberg workshop was at its peak, and its works from that time are recognized as works from the golden period known as ``mid-century,'' and are highly valued. Lindberg's studio is called G-Studion, where young designers are demonstrating their skills and producing famous artists such as Lisa Larson.
