Old wall hanging game, fowl, or herb drying rack. Hand made and floral hand painted wood board with a scalloped crown and 5 original wrought iron hooks. The hand painted floral design blends nicely with Norwegian Rosemaled folk art, we used it to hang hand knit Norwegian mittens, Scandinavian acanthus carved meerschaum pipes and wood chain wedding spoons from Norway.
The rack has an interesting free-flowing painted decoration in blue, orange, green, white, and yellow, similar to Norway Rosemaling and Swedish Kurbitz painting, or any number of European folk painting traditions such as Romanian. Condition as pictured, structurally sound. Note a wood knot or a very old filled hole between the far left 2nd and 3rd hook. Unsure of exact age, probably 19th century, possibly older.
Measures 36 inches long x 5 5/16 inches high x 2 1/2 inches deep. Thank you for looking, questions are welcome. All items are from a smoke and pet free home. We take pride in our many clearly focused photographs.
