Thrown plate, incised design.
Dark brown over pale cream slip.
Looks like a professional potter’s work.
Incised mark, maybe WI or IM.
Do design and colours suggest foreign maybe?

The design very much reminds one of the ancient Greek legend of Leda and the Swan. Where Zeus disguised as a swan rapes Leda!
Greek tourist ware Perhaps? Or Cyprus especially?

Possibly Northern European; Lapland, or native Canadian. They might be Canadian geese. The hairstyle looks very distinctive.
I suspect it's a hunter getting goose down.

A hunter with a long Pigtail hair style?

More like a cap and something tied to the end of the braided hair

Thank you Philpot and Naomi.
Taking feathers from geese or swan raping Leda. Either way I think I’ll stick with abstract decoration!
