Carved wood horse typical of Sweden known as Dala horse. The first references to the sale of these wooden figurines date back to almost 400 years and more precisely to 1623. Villagers of Swedish forests were involved in the manufacture of furniture and clocks, and it is likely that these artisans, in the long northern winters, carved with the waste wood these games for children. Initially Dala horses were for the exclusive use of children who used them to play, but it didn’t take long before they became objects for the exchange and trade.
