Mangle board for sale?

I am a Belgian collector who has cultivated an interest in European popular art or folk art, folklore and Scandinavian art. I initially collected antique tools and vintage irons, but I am now looking for old mangle boards produced before 1900. I purchase mangle boards from all regions: Scandinavia (Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland), the Netherlands, Germany, Alsace (France), Austria, the British Isles, Central Europe, Eastern Europe and Russia. I am interested in expanding my collection with rustic-style mangle boards that are both simple in design and ornamentation, as well as more elaborately carved and/or painted models, with or without a sculpted handle (representing a horse, mermaid or lion). If you have a mangle board to sell or if you would like more information about a mangle board in your possession, you can contact me by email at the following address: This email address is being protected from spambots.
