A Time Remembered

Manufacturer: Rorstrand/Made in Sweden
This wonderful 1971 Rorstrand Julen Christmas Plate is marked on the back: Julen / Rorstrand / Sweden / 1971 / Limited Edition / Collectors Piece.
In 1726 the Swedish Porcelain Manufactory was founded at Stora Rörstrand in Stockholm.
By the 1850s faience, flintware, bone china and feldspar porcelain were not only the pride of kings and nobility, but had begun to appear on the tables of ordinary folk, too. Then, in the 1890s, Rörstrand recruited its first artists, among them Alf Wallander, to decorate breathtaking objets d'art for the Stockholm Exhibition in 1897 and the World Fair in Paris in 1900.
It was a breakthrough for Rörstrand. The company expanded, moved to Gothenburg in 1926 and to even larger premises in Lidköping in 1936.
Styles change over 281 years. So do needs and tastes. But a good name for creativity and quality endures.
That name is Rörstrand - synonymous with a proud tradition of Swedish porcelain production, and a living cultural heritage since 1726.
In very good + condition without chips, cracks or fleabites the plate is in it's original box that does show wear and it measures 7 1/2 inches by 7 5/8 inches.
An addition to any Rorstrand Christmas Plate Collection.
