For sale is a set of two Older Nils Olsson "Akta Dalahemslojd" hand-carved and hand-painted wooden horses & tray from Sweden. Traditional Dala horses have been carved and painted in the region for many centuries. Dala refers to the painted style of flowers and motifs used to decorate furniture and homes in Sweden. The stickers of authenticity are still intact and clearly legible on both horses .(as can be seen in the photos).
The horses are bright orange with ornate red, yellow, and green detailing. The larger horse measures 4" tall (to the tip of the ear) & 3 1/2" long (from the top of the nose). The width is approximately 1 1/2 inches. The smaller of the two horses measures 3 inches from the tip of the ear x 2 3/4 inches inches from the nose to the tail. The width is approximately 1 inch.
They came with a wooden hand painted tray but it has no label. I am selling the 3 pieces as they have lived together and would hate to separate them. The tray measures approximately 6 3/4 in. long x 3 in. width x 1in. deep. They are in EXCELLENT condition. Please enlarge photo's as they are part of the description.
