Early Mangle Board with Old Rosemaling

$ -- Sold --

Scandinavian mangle board, probably Norwegian circa 1795, with old decorative paint.  The curved handle has been carved from a flat board, and the mangling board has unusual shaped edges and a scalloped end.  There are indications that the maker had originally planned geometric chip carved decoration but finally finished the surface with traditional rosemaling in shades of blue.  Great original patina.
