Vintage Swedish Dala Horse Valkommen sign from JunqueGypsy.Etsy.com

Charming vintage hand carved and hand painted Swedish Dala horse with Valkommen (Welcome) painted on both sides and two eye hooks from which to hang it. Could be your outdoor welcome sign, although I would probably hang it in a more protected spot in order to cherish the beautiful bright paint and embellishments.

A Scandinavian folk art classic - The most famous Carved Wooden Dala Horses are made in the villages around Mora, Sweden, especially Nusnäs, in the province of Dalarna in central Sweden. Over the years the hand carved and painted Dala Horse has become a symbol of authentic Swedish handicraft, a treasured symbol of Sweden and one of Scandinavia's most popular souvenirs.

Approx measurements are 11 X 12 X 1.5 inches. Base is heavy wood painted in traditional shade of orangy red with gray, green, white, black, and yellow traditional designs painted over the base coat. "Valkommen" is in fancy cursive writing on both sides in creamy white color paint. This does not have the Olsson sticker, but is definitely in the same style as others I have sold with the sticker. There is a spot underneath that looks as if a sticker may have been removed.

What a great house warming or wedding gift for your Scandinavian heritage friends!

In excellent vintage condition with no visible chips, scratches, or scrapes.

Unpackaged, this weighs just over 2 pounds.
