Smorgasbord, Sweden is in the heart

Original numbered copy from the Nordiska Museet

Regular price $289.00

Here is one of the pieces we like the most, a quirk and telling statement from past times that teaches us a lot about Nordic heritage and history. This wall decoration is an original numbered copy from the Nordiska Museet printed with a reproduction of what four examples of once upon a time were different shop signs. In the old times, the shop signs were often flags hanging from the door of the craft shops and underneath there was some kind of cartoon for the understanding of those who could not read.

In this piece, the name of their business is written in ancient Swedish: first the hat maker, then the producer of copper items, last is the silversmith / iron monger. Were are not sure about the third one: could he be working a lathe, so perhaps making spokes for a wheel?

Size: 130x40 cm / 51.18x15.75 in.

Condition: gently used.
