This wonderful desk exhibits 8 paintings, the work of 2 different Dala painters..possibly Johannes Nilsson (1816-1989) and his son. The piece dates from the mid 1800's. Upon completion of the painting, the owners were not pleased, so relegated the desk to the barn for over 100 years.. A Texan couple found it and purchased it to export to the USA. Before the desk arrived in the US, the wife died and her husband sold the desk to an antique dealer in Seattle, WA. in the 1970's. The desk measures 74" long, 25" deep, 32" high a sloped writing surface that includes lovely kurbits. The desk is the gift of Barbara Glaser and is displayed in the classroom of the Välkommen Hus.
