Swedish Dala Horse Ornament
The Story BehindOver the years the handcarved and painted Dala Horse has become a symbol of authentic Swedish handicraft and one of Sweden's most popular souvenirs. The name comes from its home province, Dalarna, in central Sweden. Most popular are the red-orange horses from the little village of Nusn s near Mora.
Each glass ornament is mouth-blown into finely carved molds
A solution of hot liquid silver is added for exceptional color and vibrance
Ornaments are then hand-painted and hand-glittered for a fine finish
Det ar sa vackert
I got one for me and one for my mom (bornin Sweden). Shipping was great. Horses are beautiful. Perfect!
If you are Swedish and have grandparents from Dalarna, you will love this ornament! Definitely a must have!!!!!!
