This is a ceramic plate of a couple under an apple tree designed by Lisa Larson for Gustavsberg in 1977. In Gustavsberg, there was a department called G-Studion, where well-known designers such as Stig Lindberg and Lisa Larson produced art works, apart from the mass-produced line. This is a work made in the atelier. Each piece is handmade, and the back is stamped with the name of Lisa Larson.

There are three types of apple tree porcelain plates: newlyweds, middle age, and old age. The couple depicted in each painting is the same, but the image of the couple gradually growing older under the apple tree is depicted. The color of apples also changes to crimson, yellow, and black as they age. This pottery board is from the prime of life.

Lisa Larson's porcelain plates are usually flat, even though they are thick. The three pieces express the dignity of the husband who puffs out his chest and the chastity of the wife who puts her hands together in good manners. It is quite large and measures over 30cm in length. Lisa Larson's hand sign is on the back, indicating that this product has been inspected.

■ Details Manufacturer: Gustavsberg Designer: Lisa Larson Age: 1977
Condition: ★★★★★ (5: Complete) There is no noticeable damage and no fading, so it is in dead stock condition. In addition, the multiple round marks on the unglazed back are not dirt, but marks from the support during manufacturing. The color change occurs because the support that floats the bottom in the furnace hits so that the unglazed part is ignited. There is a dent in the lower right corner of the main body, but it is not a scratch on the surface of the gold glaze, but a manufacturing process.

■ Lisa Larson (1931- )
Born in a village called Härlunda with a population of about 500 in the Älmhult district of the Kronoberg county in the Småland region in southern Sweden. When I was young, I wanted to be a fashion designer, but after entering the Gothenburg College of Art, I learned ceramics. At one point, Stig Lindberg discovered him in a competition, and after a one-year trial period, he officially joined Gustavsberg as a designer. Soon after, in 1955, he announced the Lilla zoo series, and in 1964 he devised the famous Afrika series of lion statues.

In addition to Gustavsberg, Lisa Larson has also designed for Höganäs, national retail giant Åhléns and German pottery manufacturer Rosenthal. After leaving Gustavsberg in 1979, he took the position of a freelance artist who entered into freelance contracts with companies rather than working exclusively with them, and continued his creative activities freely while working in various fields. In 1979 and 1981, he held solo exhibitions at the Seibu Department Store in Tokyo, and it is said that 70,000 people visited the solo exhibition in 1981.
