These two Swedish folk art paintings were rescued from the garbage. They appear to have some age, but I am unsure exactly how old they might be.

The banner with the dancers is about 5' in length and have the lyrics to the song "Vi ska ställa till en roliger dans" written across the bottom. This one has no apparent signature. It looks as if it might have been mounted at one time.

The banner with the mountains is maybe 4.5' in length. This one has the initials "A.S." on the lower right hand corner. the mountain is identified as Åreskutan-one of the more famous mountains in Sweden. I uploaded additional photos to my Flickr account below.

I would appreciate any help you can offer to identify these items. Thanks in advance.
