WOW! A beautiful example of Norwegian rosemaling done by a well documented American artist. Wooden plate is LARGE at approx. 16" in diameter. Painted in the classic Lynse style of creamy white background with rosemaled flowers and a saying: "Smorrgaasbordet er nu daekket - Vaer saa god!". I am sure my Norwegian ancestors and relatives would know what this means but I don't! Back is signed with what appears to be the initials of "LS" and then "Lynse" - not sure if this done by Per Lynse or one of his relatives - I hope some of you folk art experts will know. The piece is classic Per Lynse with the light colored background, the Norwegian saying, and the blue back. T is one spot approx. 2' in length w the paint has peeled off by the word "Smorgaasbordet" - but very hard to notice -see pictures. The plate could use a good cleaning but will leave that to the new owner.

Family heirloom piece - my family is originally from Northeastern Iowa and are all Norwegian in ancestory. A beautiful piece to be added to someone's collection!
