I dug this sign out of a box at the flea market last week; it struck me that if one were ever to need to paint a sign advertising a "Swedish Exhibit", this would be exactly the sign to make! Blue and yellow like the Swedish Flag, and with hand-painted text that, having spent a little time in Sweden, seems to me to perfectly embody Sweden's distinct folky / modern mix. Just a fun thing to have around.
A little damage to the surface at lower left, wear around the edges, and staining around the edges on the back. Either gouache or tempera; super saturated. I'm double checking measurements but its about 12" long.
