Swedish Gustavian Period 1820s Painted Sideboard With Reeded Doors And Diamonds XX95

" Swedish Gustavian Period 1820s Painted Sideboard With Reeded Doors And Diamonds XX95"
A Swedish Gustavian period painted wood sideboard from the early 19th century, with reeded doors, diamond motifs and carved ogee bracket feet. Created in Sweden during the first quarter of the 19th century, this Gustavian sideboard features a rectangular top sitting above two large doors carved with reeded patterns and diamond motifs. These doors open to reveal a grey painted interior showcasing inner shelves offering convenient storage solutions. The sideboard is raised on four ogee bracket feet whose sinuous lines complement the piece's linear silhouette beautifully. It is painted in a soft color typical of the Swedish taste for light palettes aiming at brightening the rooms during the dark winters of Scandinavia. The Gustavian style takes its roots in the Louis XVI era. Swedish King Gustav III resided in 1771 in Paris, at the beginning stages of the Louis XVI style. There, he was inspired by French art and fashion. With that in his luggage, he had a strong desire to introduce something similar in Sweden. The country had fine craftsmen with high quality craftsmanship, who produced a simple style with harmonious aesthetics. The Gustavian style was born and has been in vogue ever since. It is incredibly popular, especially in England but also in France and in the USA. Price and age are of course inextricably linked, the older and rarer the higher the price! With its clean lines and nicely carved décor, this Swedish Gustavian period painted sideboard circa 1820 will bring a touch of Classical elegance to any home, whether placed in a living room or foyer.
