Signed like that it may well be an Elis Bergh design for Kosta but that is just a guess, not one I have seen before.

I would suggest you check out Holmegaard as well.  See photos of Pwt by Michael Bang(signed) with a B1719 pattern number but no Holmegaard marking.  Peter Harder agrees it is a Holmegaard piece but had never seen one.  We decided that the B designated the colours and the 1719 the design for my Pwt.

I'd recommend following John's lead, Bergh for Kosta, as, although he understates it, that's how a Bergh piece would have been signed at that time, around 1940, and it has the look of a Bergh piece.
