Exclusive to Nordic House in the UK, each Dala horse is carefully hand-crafted; from the carving to the painting - by traditional craftsmen and women, using sustainable wood from the Swedish forests.
It is easy to trace the origin of this wonderful craft back to the lumberjacks' log cabins as early as the 18th century. There they would sit around the fireplaces during winter nights, carving figures from odd pieces of wood. The popular choice was a horse, which was a creature of great value for families. These were taken home to the children in the villages, where they became much treasured toys.
Available in three sizes they are heirlooms for the future - each size is sold separately.Material: Swedish PineSizes: Small- Height: 15cm Medium - Height: 17cm Large - Height: 20cm
