The Dala horse (Dalahäst in Swedish) is one of the best known symbols of Sweden.  We love this fun take on the traditional Dala horse ~ a Sitting Dala Horse!  Whimsy, humor, and a twist on tradition are the perfect way to show your own personality.

This makes the perfect home accent, and especially a thoughtful and unique gift.

 

Handcrafted in Sweden

Each Dala Horse is handcrafted in Sweden and painted to have its own unique character, making your Dala Horse the only one like it in the world!

Hand-painted pine.

The timber for this Dala Horse comes from the slowly growing pine forests around Lake Siljan in Sweden.

After being hand carved, the horses are dipped in color baths three times and then painted freehand in the krusmålning tradition (a form of folk painting).

6.7 inches high (measured from foot to ear tip).

Grannas A Olsson Hemslöjd is the original maker of the Dala Horse as it is known world wide. Handcrafted into shape and then handpainted, each Grannas Dala Horse is an heirloom quality original.

Founded in 1922 by Anders Olsson, 2022 marked 100 years in business! Still operating as a small family run business (third and fourth generation). Grannas is based in Nusnäs, Sweden, a popular spot for visitors from all over the world.
