From National Tree to National Dog (Part 1)!
The Silver Birch (Betula pendula) has been the national tree of Finland since 1988 and there are literally millions of them throughout the country. The Finnish Spitz was declared national dog of Finland a few years earlier in 1979. So it seems natural to use wood from the national birch tree to make images and products representing the national dog! We have a number of such products made by Veico in Central Finland. We have a key ring, clock, pot stand, and kitchen set. The newest item we have is a large wall-hanging in the shape of a Finnish Spitz. This has been made specially for our Society and is unavailable elsewhere.

Finnish Spitz birch wood pot stand by Veico – £18.00 * SOLD OUT * – please enquire about special orders
The Finnish Spitz pot stand is designed and made in Finland by Veico out of local birch wood. The size is 20 x 20 x 1.5 cm and it weighs 220 grams. The pot stand is cut out of solid birch in the shape of a dog paw with the image of a Finnish Spitz and paw burned into it. It has been treated with a darker coloured wood oil to keep the dirt and water off. Although designed for practical use in the kitchen, it could be also used as a nice wall decoration with a small hook attached!
