    Rare figural pottery sculpted by Axel Jensen for the Danish pottery firm, Ipsen's Enke. Circa 1910s. This dish rendered in the orange/yellow interior and metallic brown glazes typical of Ipsen's Enke from this period features, what I suspect, is a creature from Scandinavian folklore. The piece is marked underneath with the Ipsen's P.I.E. mark with crown and the form number "XVI, 132." Dimensions: H 4.34 in. x Dm 8.27 in. (H 11 cm x Dm 21 cm).

      Fantastic work from Ipsen's widow's factory! The work in that figure is amazing; look at the backbone, and the face and hands!
      I have an Ipsen's Enke vase from this period with a similar beautiful glaze.

      Cogito, I'm sorry I don't, but here's some links with more factory info and also some dishes of a similar style to yours. You will need to Google translate one of them:
