This beautiful plate was made by Bjorn Wiinblad (1918-2006), a Danish painter, designer and artist.
His work first appeared in America in 1954, and has been widely shown in Europe, Australia, Japan and Canada. He was a designer for Rosenthal porcelain company and in 1971, he began an annual commemorative Christmas plate design for Rosenthal.

His pieces can be found in museums all over the world, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York; the Victoria and Albert Museum in London; and Stockholm's National Museum.
