Dendrochronological analysis was carried out for 13 historic icons from the collection of the Museum of the Folk Building in Sanok, painted on fir and spruce boards. Eleven sequences of the annual growth rings produced from the analysed fir boards were absolutely dated against the fir dendrochronological standard for S Poland, constructed by E. Szychowska-Krąpiec. Most of the analysed objects date back to the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, only one board was dated to the midnineteenth century. The dendrochronological analyses carried out prove broad possibilities of dating objects of the iconographic art painted on panels from fir wood, originating from south-eastern Poland and adjacent areas.
