Description

Internationally famous Gustavsberg, Sweden, the only remaining Swedish porcelain manufacturer still manufacturing bone china and stone ware in the factory situated in the vicinity of Stockholm, Sweden since 1825, made this series of Stockholm sceneries for the Stockholmsgillet (i.e. the Stockholm Guild). The Series was made in an annual limited edition of which some were a First Day edition with gold stamp, the others a “standard” version. They were sold at the traditional Christmas market at Stortorget in the Gamla Stan / Old Town, Stockholm.

This plate – Julen 1981 / Christmas 1981 – is number 9 in the Series. First Day edition. It is called Utsikt mot Stockholms slott / View of The Royal Palace of Stockholm. The picture is from an oil painting by Carl Stefan Bennet in the 1850s, adapted by Karin Björquist. Hand-engraving by Björn Olsson.

The plate is made of bone china in a limited edition of 1900 pieces of which 600 was made with a first day edition stamp in gold, and sold only on the first day of the Christmas market. The plate has its stamp in gold on the backside as well as two stars in gold on the front. It is also stamped with the famous Gustavsberg anchor logotype. Ø ca 22 cm / approx. 8,5 inches. The plate has never been displayed. The front is in excellent condition, the backside has some chip-like holes in the bone china glaze, due to the manufacturing process. (I notice this on all Gustavsberg’s plates.) Comes with the original box and a suspension device inside box. These plates are genuine Stockholmiana.

Made in Sweden.
