Some information about the "Dala horse"

Ever since the 17th century, dala horses have been manufactured, both as a by-product of the furniture carpentry or as a toy.

The Dala horse is available in a lot of different designs, but the most common one is the one that is decorated as "kurbits" on a red base.
