A Swedish neoclassical style late 19th century painted side table from Småland with carved apron and tapered legs. Born in the Southern province of Småland, this Swedish painted side table features a rectangular top sitting above an exquisitely carved apron. This apron is delicately adorned with waterleaves motifs, whose peaceful cadence creates a harmonious continuity on the four sides. The table is raised on four slender tapered legs, accented with a bevelled respiration on the knees. The table is painted in a light color, typical of the Scandinavian taste for soft palettes, aiming at brightening the homes of the Swedes during the long, dark winters. The grand simplicity of the silhouette is perfectly contrasted by the delicacy of the carved décor. With its clean lines and refined apron, this Southern Swedish Neoclassical style painted table, circa 1880 will bring a graceful presence in any home, whether placed in living room, bedroom or hallway.
