The wood panel is made of an oval Surfboard shaped piece of wood that has been stained, it looks very Danish, or Swedish Modern style. The wood is just under 1 inch thick. It is a substantial piece of wood.
Was located in Mendota, Minnesota and was founded in 1962 by Harold Nielson, as a division of Foldcraft Co. Belart went out of business around 1989 due to increased competition from the foreign market. Nielson still lives in Minnesota where he runs a nonprofit organization called Third World Friends. These home interior decorations are ready to be hung with solid still functioning hardware on the back.
There are some small flaws, some yellowing of the paint, small scratches, and some writing on the back. It is missing one of the small card-stock squares. Some of the card stock paper show signs of fading. It could be replaced, or the rod painted black, but overall quite a striking appearance. If it was hung on a wall from distance they are not very noticeable (see photos for close ups).
For vintage pieces from the 1960s these are in pretty amazing shape. The largest plaque measures approximately 36 inches wide 12 inches tall at the widest part. The thickness of the wood is about 1 inch thick. The total depth of the plaque is 4.5 inches.
