A Swedish Gustavian style late 19th century painted wood buffet from Stockholm with carved molding, four doors, four drawers and tapered feet. This exquisite Swedish buffet features a slightly raised, rectangular top, sitting above a carved molding with arched motifs. The façade is made of four molded drawers with brass pulls, perfectly alined with the two sets of double doors placed below. These molded doors, accentuated with raised panels in their centre, open to reveal two inner shelves offering storage opportunities. Each set of doors is highlighted by a single diamond shaped escutcheon. The buffet is raised on five lovely tapered legs with fluted motifs, that visually compliment the carved molding of the upper section beautifully. The piece is painted in a light color, typical of the Scandinavian taste for soft palettes, aiming at brightening the Swedes' homes during the long, dark winters. With its convenient proportions and elegant decor, this Swedish Gustavian Style Stockholm buffet, circa 1880 will bring a graceful presence to any home, whether placed in a living room, dining room or foyer.
