This is a ceramic plate produced by a pottery called Michael Andersen & Son on the island of Bornholm, Denmark. Bornholm is a Danish enclave, a small island in the Baltic Sea surrounded by Sweden, Germany and Poland. It is also called the jewel of the Baltic Sea due to its scenic beauty. Bornholm was originally an island with a thriving handicraft industry, and Mikkel Annasen & Son is a venerable pottery studio that was founded in the 1880s and continues to this day.

This ceramic plate depicts two girls with parasols and herrings in their hands. It is like a big catch prayer in Japan, and depicts the richness of Bornholm's fishing industry. This extremely large and heavy porcelain plate is the largest porcelain plate produced by Mikel Annasen & Son.

The designer is Marianne Starck, who made the company a global manufacturer of the 20th century. Starck, a long-term German designer from 1955 to 1993, was particularly fond of using girl motifs. The light blue glaze is vivid, and the mottled gradation gives depth to the ceramic plate. Her initials, MS, are engraved on the back.

■ Details Manufacturer: Michael Andersen & Son / Mikel Anasen & Son Designer: Marianne Starck / Marianne Starck Age: 1970s (estimated)
Country of Origin: Denmark Condition: ★★★★☆ (4.5: Extremely Good Condition)
It is a very beautiful product with no damage to mention. The holes on the back are for inserting nails etc. Since there is no feeling of use in the nail hole, it is a dead stock item that has been stored without being used at all. It will be the kiln-burning mark at the time of making chake that can be seen on the back. There is a slight scratch on the back with a preservation certificate, but it is in almost mint condition that retains the original condition.
