This is a rare black cat porcelain plate from the UNIK series produced in 1967 by Lisa Larson, a representative Swedish potter. Lisa Larson designed nine ceramic plates this year, including cats, birds, horses and elephants.

A porcelain plate with an elephant. The servants and the royal family behind them are drawn.

Each porcelain plate was handcrafted at Gustavsberg's atelier called G Studio in the capital Stockholm.

The UNIK series has been produced for a long time, so there are considerable differences in color tone depending on the era. Basically, the later the work is, the brighter the color changes, and the thickness of the ceramic plate is about 1 cm. This is a relatively dark color and thin 8mm thickness. It is presumed to have been produced between 1967 and the 1970s.

Unlike the normal coloring, this is a color scheme with yellow as the main color. Elephant porcelain plates are known for their rare blue color, but this is a porcelain plate with a rather rare color pattern.

Lisa Larson (1931-2024)

A world-renowned ceramic artist representing Sweden. Born in the village of Härlunda, in the Älmhult district of Kronoberg county in the Småland region of southern Sweden.

When she was young, she aspired to be a clothing designer, but after enrolling at Gothenburg University of the Arts, she studied ceramics. One day, he was discovered by Stig Lindberg at a competition, and after a one-year trial period, he officially joined Gustavsberg as a designer. Shortly after, in 1955, he announced the Lilla zoo series, and in 1964 he devised the Afrika series, famous for its lion statues.

In addition to Gustavsberg, Lisa Larsson has also provided designs for Höganäs, domestic retail giant Åhléns, and German pottery manufacturer Rosenthal. After leaving Gustavsberg in 1979, he was active in various fields while continuing his creative activities freely, taking the position of a freelance artist under a voluntary contract with a company rather than an exclusive contract. In 1979 and 1981, he held solo exhibitions at the Seibu Department Store in Tokyo, and his solo exhibition in 1981 is said to have attracted 70,000 visitors.
