The Dala Horse, originally a toy created by Swedish wood carvers over a century ago, has inspired a new tradition from Lindsborg craftsmen. Since 1984, Hemslöjd has handcrafted Personalized Dala Horse Signs for homes all around the world.
Hemslöjd's Wooden Dala Horse Sign is completely handmade in our workshop in Lindsborg. We start with planks of basswood, then cut out and shape the Dala horses adding extra detailing around the neck and head. Each sign is hand-decorated and lettered on both sides by Hemslöjd's folk-artists. Please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery of this personalized item. Our Dala Horse Sign is weather-hardy and made to be displayed outdoors.
CARE TIPS: Every 2 to 5 years, thoroughly wash and dry your sign then brush or spray on a coat of satin-finish water-based polyurethane.
DISPLAY TIPS: Predrill holes for the screw-eyes using a 1/8" drill-bit to prevent splitting of the wood. See the diagram to properly locate the screw-eyes.
PLEASE NOTE! When ordering, please specify the inscriptions you want lettered on both sides (left and right) of your Dala Horse Sign. (If you're riding the horse, your left leg is on the horse's left side, and your right leg on the horse's right side.) Most popular are: family name, "Välkommen" or "Kom igen" ("welcome" or "come again" in Swedish). We can also letter your house number or "welcome" in many other languages. Actual design of Dala horse may vary.
