Antique Original Painted Swedish Allmöge Cupboard Cabinet Dated 1936

This expertly crafted cabinet reveal both a professional cabinet maker and painter were involved in creating what was likel a commissioned piece in the early 1900's. With hand painted family shields and monograms, the names Nilsson and Pettersson are both displayed. The tree painted on the inside left door with family shields seems to portray the 2 families merging under one family tree, so this was likely a wedding present or possible anniversary present in 1936. The original painted flourishes along the top crown and floral panels are absolutely vibrant, bringing life to this striking cupboard. The background was painted in the traditional folk art style of the day, with a faux wood look in earth tones. Please examine the close up photos to appreciate the exceptional details in this fine antique cabinet.  It is being sold as is, as no alterations or finish has been added since we recently shipped it from Europe to the US. You will even notice that the prior owner added a ribbon to the edge of the shelves, which is easily removed if so desired.
