The Swedish countryside has always produced lovely, hand-painted furniture, of which this cabinet is a fine example. This cupboard is very traditional in both the cabinetry and the stylized painting technique of the 1800's. The molded angles of the crown are one specific feature, while in the four panels hand painted flowers tied in a ribbon and the painted crown in the bonnet are also indicative of the era. Age related wear is seen throughout, including the scrape along the lower right door revealing an earlier white paint beneath. This Swedish cupboard is being sold as is, in original used condition.
