Old flower design hanging plaque-is it Scandinavian? - T Matthews?

Post by stardust* on January 14th 2016, 3:30 pm

This caught my eye, I'm assuming it's not british just by the design (though I'm almost always wrong!) The underside has no mark but an indentation and marks left from, I think, it being poured into a mould.
I can't find anything the same on searching. I think it was used under a teapot!
Can anyone help?

There have been discussions on these pieces here before although not sure there was a definite identification

the dealer who sold me my signed piece (in felt pen) said it was made by a British female ceramicist

but who is this Tim Mathieson? I haven't come across his work

He was a suggestion made by Naomi in the EH Matthews thread.
I agree it's very frustrating. I sold mine not knowing !

I see why everyone is frustrated, apart from the auction of the two plaques (giving the name T Matthews) there really is nothing to find on the internet!...yet
