Vintage Scandinavian Styled Small Lapped Birch Bark Snuff Box, Native American Made ~ Northern MN

This is made with the Norwegian / Swedish character or style. The history we got when found was that the maker has long passed but was a Native American craftsman that had great skills.
Believed to be from the 1940's or early 50's, wood top with leather loop handle on lid. Fitted wood bottom with leather surround and Birch Bark body.

The craftsman encased the piece in a varnish to keep it protected. I'm sure with the intention of protection from future wear when used, this also gives
the piece a very nice look for your display.

Measures 3 inches high x 4 inches long x 1.5 inches wide.

Thank you for looking, please see photos and email with any questions prior to purchase. I want you happy!

Norwegian Henning wood sculpture carved by hand in Norway ~ Boy Rider on Caribou / Reindeer

Vintage Henning Norway Little Boy Riding Reindeer Wood Carving Sculpture. Very cute and complete
carving we purchased in an estate. Believed to be from the 1960's - 70's. Note the last photo. This shows the original tag and burned Henning mark.

Some History ~

Giving his name to his carvings, Henning Engelsen (1918-2005) was from the very beginning the creative force behind HENNING. Henning Engelsen had for many years shown great talent in fine arts and at some point worked as an illustrator. He later told that it was a coincidence that woodcarving got to his attention. But in 1947 in Rondane, a Nature Reservate in the middle of Norway, Henning carved his first pieces. The workshop was built in 1950 by Henning Engelsen, two years after he founded HENNING. It was given a personal style and became a inspirational workingplace for Henning and his employees. Henning Engelsen found his inspiration in creating his own visual world both out of the mystical and supernatural Norwegian folklore as well as his everyday life at home; the people, animals and rampant nature.

Measurements are approx. 5.5" by 5". Beautiful coloration and wonderful idea for a gift to a loved one or your Norwegian collection.

Norwegian Henning wood sculpture carved folk art by hand in Norway ~ Girl in Traditional Clothing

Vintage Henning Norway girl or young lady in her traditional dress, blowing on a horn, wood carving sculpture. Very nice and appears complete.

This carving was purchased in an estate. Believed to be from the 1960's - 70's. Note the last photo. This shows the original burned Henning mark.

Some History ~

Giving his name to his carvings, Henning Engelsen (1918-2005) was from the very beginning the creative force behind HENNING. Henning Engelsen had for many years shown great talent in fine arts and at some point worked as an illustrator. He later told that it was a coincidence that woodcarving got to his attention. But in 1947 in Rondane, a Nature Reservate in the middle of Norway, Henning carved his first pieces. The workshop was built in 1950 by Henning Engelsen, two years after he founded HENNING. It was given a personal style and became a inspirational workingplace for Henning and his employees. Henning Engelsen found his inspiration in creating his own visual world both out of the mystical and supernatural Norwegian folklore as well as his everyday life at home; the people, animals and rampant nature.

Measurements are approx. 13.5" tall by 5" base by 10" across with horn. Beautiful coloration and wonderful idea for a gift to a loved one or your Norwegian collection.

Scandinavian Walnut corner shelf ~ Carved Lena Owens 1890s

This is a wonderful piece of folk art. Hand made and hand carved ornamentation on this small shelf. The name Lena Owens carefully cutout along with a crest or decoration opposite it.

There is some damage to the ornamentation and a small amount to the lettering. One shelf has a buckle by the screw. Otherwise very sturdy and willing to hold your treasures.

This measures 22" long by 9" each side by 13" across. Purchased years ago in a century home in Minnesota. This is not an import. It is something that was made by a family that came over in the first or second wave of Norwegian immigrants.
