Welcome to the Forum. It would be helpful if you could get a beeter image of the label or, if not, try and tell us what some of the letters might be.

However, it is not Porsgrund, which includes an anchor in the mark.

"keramik verkstad" is pottery in Swedish.

I haven't been able to find any mark remotely like this so I guess that it is a small pottery in Sweden. Someone might know but it isn't from Norway, as you originally thought.

Found it: it is made by Guldkrokens Keramikverkstad Hjo, but it has to be old, because later there labels were different. Like this:

Guldkrokens Keramikverkstad 178862931

That's good detective work and thank you for sharing.

I see that the company was started by Bengt Oscar Grunditz and his wife, Martha, in 1946 as the Grunditz Guldkrokens Stove Factory in the town of Hjo, Sweden but they almost immediately began to manufacture household and ornamental goods that were hand painted as well. These were mainly sold in Sweden but they also exported, including to the USA.

It seems that their children ran the company from 1980 until 1988 before selling out to a large conglomerate that owns other factories. It looks as if the trademark is still in use so the dog and cat above could be very modern and at the very least after 1988.

From the label on your figure I would think that it is likely to have been made in the first 20 years of the company's existence.
