Economic sector: Worked in an urban workshop; this type of object can be found on the current market at about 50 – 60
Romanian lei; the interest in acquiring this item is growing thanks to its usage – utilitarian and decorative – and because many
people are interested in decorating the interior with pieces of Saxon Folk Art. Currently in the country it is a very small number of
people who manufacture pieces of wooden furniture with Saxon ornaments (about. 3 companies).
