Wooden Telemark Rosemaling Plate – SOLD


This plate is simply gorgeous!   The design is so intricate and well executed, and the colors are saturated and harmonious.  The colors are tones of brown and golden yellow, green, orange and tan with cream colored detailing against a beautiful blue-green background.  The edge of the plate is decorated with golden-yellow swirls.  The paint style is Telemark which is identified by the intertwining C and S from which the rest of the patterns extend.  It is apparent that a skilled artist created this piece; the plate is signed by the artist Esther Gjeldnes and dated 1975.

The plate is 11-1/2″ wide, and about 3/4″ tall.  It weighs approx. 11oz.  There is a nail in the back for wall hanging.  While there is some wear around the edges, we consider this sign of use as added personality.  Please see the photos for the very slightly worn paint.
