Rosemaling Wall Container in Wood


You won’t see a rosemaling object like this often.  A unique wall-hanging decoration that will surely get compliments, the painting skill is superb.  While we don’t recommend putting a plant in it because it’s made of wood, certainly dry or silk flowers would look lovely.  Or make it more utilitarian in your entrance way for gloves in the winter.

The piece is done in the classical Norwegian red with blue tones, reds, oranges and yellows.  Detailing in black and white.  The year 1991 is painted on the front.  The artist Esther Green has signed her name on the back, and there is a sticker on the back that translated says “Craftsmen in Hedmark”.  Hedmark is north of Oslo in the northeastern part of Østmark.  There is no visible damage and a few very tiny, hardly noticeable spots along some edges where the paint has worn off.

The piece weighs around 15oz, is 15-1/2″ tall, 13″ wide and 6″ deep.
