Swedish Karl Johan Period 1830s Painted Four-Drawer Commode with Voluted Skirt

A Swedish Karl Johan period painted wood four-drawer commode from the first half of the 19th century, with bracket feet and voluted skirt. This Swedish painted commode features a rectangular, slightly raised top, sitting above four graduated drawers. Each drawer is adorned with two classical ring pulls, flanking a central escutcheon. The grand linearity of the silhouette is beautifully contrasted by the eye-catching base, featuring bracket feet, connected to one another through an exquisite voluted skirt in the front. The commode is painted in a soft grey color, typical of the Scandinavian taste for such palettes. With its clean lines and elegant skirt, this Swedish Karl Johan four-drawer chest circa 1830-1840 will compliment any home, whether placed in a bedroom or living room.
