Occasionally we find a special, one of a kind piece that captures ones heart and imagination. Such is the case with this lovely original hand-painted armoire from Sweden. Beautiful floral bouquets and elaborate garland abound in rich autumn colors of green, burnt red/orange, cream and yellow. The date of 1778 and monograms of M.A.S. and L.O.D. are clearly visible, indicating this remarkable cabinet was likely commissioned as a gift to a couple for either a wedding or special anniversary. Even the crown/bonnet, drawers and trim are decoratively painted adding to the cost which made this armoire even more special. The interior shelving and single drawer were painted soft green and white at different points in time, all of which has been distressed and gently sanded. This armoire has been cleaned, restored and waxed and it is stable/strong and ready for use.
