Hollandse volkskunst Beddestok/ Beddenstok/ Mangelplank
Rare Dutch Bedstick/ Mangelplank
I have never seen this model myself.
In my opinion it is a bed stick to properly and smooth out the sheets and blankets in a bed
It is made from 1 piece of oak wood
It has been used very intensively, so that the carved decorations are quite worn.
Some small pieces have already broken off, but that was a long time ago given the beautiful aged patina.
A beautiful piece of Dutch folk art
Bought in the province of Overijssel
