A Swedish mid-19th century painted wood demi-lune console table from Småland with carved apron, single drawer and cabriole legs. Born in the Southern province of Småland, this Swedish painted demilune table features a semi-circular top sitting above an exquisitely carved apron with arched motifs, concealing a central dovetailed drawer. The table is raised on four elegant cabriole legs, accented with carved rosettes on the knees. The piece is painted in a light color, typical of the Scandinavian taste for soft palettes, aiming at brightening the homes during the long, dark winters of Sweden. With its elegant silhouette and lovely décor, this Swedish demilune console table, circa 1850 will bring a graceful presence to any home, whether placed in a living room, foyer or hallway.
