The label on the underside of the enamelled dish reads "Kockums Sweden". I googled this and apparently Kockums now make submarines. Strange but true. I considered titling the painting "Kockums" , however, descretion proved the better part of valour...

    The Kockums you are referring to is Kockums Jernverk (Iron Works), now Kockums Maskin AB, www.kab.se
