Interesting dinner plate that probably had a lot of brothers and sisters smashed to bits at village fetes in the 60s and 70s. Obvious maker but anyone know who designed it?

Is it cold-painted, or properly glazed and fired?
It may just be a decorated blank.

Properly glazed. The decorated blank idea may be the one as is evinced by the glazed fingerprint at the edge. It must have taken a lot of time to produce something this hideous.
Fashion, eh!...

It just doesn't look like something one would eat one's dinner off!

Oh, I wouldn't say that. It doesn't look any worse than the food of that era.
