Here is a needlepointed enduring symbol of Swedish handicraft - The Dala Horse. The historical story of these little snubnosed stocky and tailless horses says they originated from the 1700's. Swedish woodcutters would carve them out of wood scraps and bring them home to their children. The Swedish Winter war of 1716 is when soldiers would carve and paint them in an orange red paint to give to accomodating household's children in exchange for a bowl of soup. What a sweet frugal way to say Thank You ~ Enjoy!

The polished oval metal belt buckle base measures 3.75" x 2.75" & should easily fit any 1.5" wide snap-style belt ( which is not included ). The actual needlepoint is my design and hand stitched by me and then blocked and shaped and affixed onto the buckle base with a non-toxic adhesive.

Thank You for having a look!
Will come in a simple decorated box for safe keeping & gift giving. : )

If you have any questions I'd love to hear from you. If you have something different in mind - it can be done. : )
