It is a ceramic plate produced in the atelier of Gustavsberg, a long-established Swedish pottery manufacturer. At Gustavsberg, apart from the mass production line, there was an in-house atelier called G-Studion where craftsmen produced pottery one by one by hand. The designer is Stig Lindberg, a mid-century flag-bearer who represents Northern Europe in the 20th century. It depicts Don Quixote, the main character of Cervantes' novel "Don Quixote", and Sancho Panza, the attendant who rides the Rocinante. You can see the autograph stamped by Stig Lindberg on the lower right of the front. With a weight of more than 2 kilograms, this heavy ceramic plate is one of the masterpieces that vividly conveys the heyday of Scandinavian modernity to the present day.

■ Stig Lindberg (1916-1982)
Born in Umeå, a city in northern Sweden. After studying painting at Konstfack, the capital Stockholm, he joined Gustavsberg in 1937. Twelve years later, in 1949, he succeeded Koge as the company's art director. Since then, Lindberg has released numerous works as a standard-bearer of Swedish modernism in the middle of the 20th century. The Gustavsberg company in the era when Lindberg was active reached its heyday, and even now the works of that time are recognized as the work of the golden age called "mid-century" and have high value. Gustavsberg has an in-house atelier called G-Studion (G Studio) apart from the mass-produced line, where young artists such as Lisa Larson worked to create one-of-a-kind art pieces. Lindberg has also produced many atelier works by exercising his skills with young artists. Lindberg retired from the front line in 1980 and opened a workshop in Italy where he retired, but died two years later.
