Item/Description: Vintage 1962 Berggren Trayner cutting/bread board wall plaque with Swedish proverb “Egen härd är guld värd.”

This charming kitchenware collectible board is stunningly handpainted in a dazzling array of vibrant colors, with the decorations that embellish the board consisting of the typically festive and elaborate Swedish flowers motif.

The additional imagery depicted is that of a lovely Swiss girl standing in a garden foreground with her faithful little black puppy dog nearby. In the background you can see into the interior kitchen area of her white picket fenced home, where a black cast iron cauldron pot is cooking over a brick stove adjacent to a chair.

The Swedish proverb saying that is espoused on this decorative wall hanging reads “Egen härd är guld värd.” According to, this literally translates to “(One's) own stove is worth gold,” or more loosely “Praises the chance to have a place one can call ‘my own’."

Condition Summary: Very good vintage collectible condition, retaining vivid coloration and exhibiting no paint loss or significant condition factors to any of the main decorative face side of the board. There is a normal and not unusual modicum of age appropriate edge/border/corner wear (surface wood rubs/grazes) present, primarily on the lower/bottommost left corner edge and slightly along the top left edge (kindly refer to photos), but nothing which in any way detracts from the displayability or collectibility of this delightful kitchen accent piece.
