By Strindberg (listed Swedish sculptor), dated "40" (1940) "Svenska draghundklubben". Otto Meyers appears to be the founder. Also in bold Swedish text " Viribus conjvnetis per silvas ad montes" The bronze plaque has been laid down on a brass plate that has been dedicated to "Till Hjalmar Ohrstedt for fortjanstfuitt arbete till draghundsportens framjande." Dare you to find another! Dogsledding is not an everyday thing, except maybe in Alaska, and that's not especially a center for antiques. This should test worldwide e-commerce! Swedes, are you there? The bronze plaque is attached to a brass back that has been dedicated to the winner of the race
