wood work






This is a beautiful work of art. A known local handicraft. It's the work of my husband's grandfather's brother.  Ingvald Näse, a farmer from Kronoby, made these for years and was 90 years old when he made this piece that my husband received as a gift from his parents. Ingvald sadly passed away this year, but rumours say the knowledge has been passed down to a younger generation. I hope for continuation.

Är lycklig ägare till ett exakt likadant skrin av samma tillverkare. Skrinet är bland det finaste jag äger. :-)
