Stefan of Ruthin.

Discovered locally yesterday this striking large 1970’s wall plaque (diameter 34″) with stylized design of three charging horses rendered in glazed ceramic on a painted white board. Unknown artist, however, the reverse carries a lable with the title ‘Troika’ (a Russian term for a team of three horses), a signature (Stefan?) and an address in Ruthin North Wales so a bit of research might reveal something. Sold with original hanging bracket.
From the same source and presumably by the same artist a large impressionist landscape in oil on canvas 45″ x 28″. Clearly signed Stefan in the lower left hand corner. If anyone can identify the artist we would love to know more.
