A faux wood grain finish was a favorite traditional style in Sweden, as seen in the warm earth tones of this painted and paneled armoire. This one shows off its remarkable age, with the date of 1721 inside the top door. Notice the extra long, hand-wrought iron hinges and original interior locks, which serve to confirm the date as well. Age related distress has worn away the paint in many areas, yet adds to the character of the cabinet. Some damage is evident to the lower door in the left hand corner and a small section of panel trim is missing on the top door. Sold as is, in used original condition.
