Telemark and the name jensen

Classification: Query
I cannot seem to let something die, a sign that my sister-in-law ever had a family in Norway actually, a wooden plate with wood burning on front:
283
Stabur fra Telemarken(woodcut of a storage chalet)and under it______
1798
and on the back:
Thorbjorn E. Jensen
1902
It was one of the only possessions that came with a three year boy child to America. Though the family came from Ostfold county, I find the plate strange, and would love to unravel the mystery behind it. May not be possible, but any ideas are welcome. Might it just be a souveniere?
