Danish 1790s Louis XVI Period Painted And Carved Demilune Two-drawer Chest XX90

"Danish 1790s Louis XVI Period Painted And Carved Demilune Two-drawer Chest XX90"
A Danish Louis XVI period painted wood demi-lune chest of drawers from the late 18th century, with two drawers, carved dentil molding, fluted accents, tapered legs and distressed patina. Created in Denmark during the last decade of the 18th century, this Louis XVI period painted demi-lune chest features a semi-circular top sitting above a delicately carved dentil molding. Two bow-front drawers, fitted with Classical ribbon-tied hardware, are flanked with fluted side posts creating a subtle sense of visual continuity on the façade. The chest is raised on four tapered legs with carved dentil on the knees. It is painted in a soft color typical of the Scandinavian taste for light palettes aiming at brightening the rooms during the dark winters. It boasts a nicely weathered patina and natural character revealing its nice age and use. The back is unfinished and as it is the case with demi-lune pieces, the chest will look at its best placed against a wall. With its clean lines and distressed appearance, this Danish Louis XVI period demi-lune chest of drawers circa 1790 will make for a lovely addition to any bedroom, living room or hallway.
