A Swedish neoclassical painted side table from the mid-19th century, with carved apron and foliage decorated legs. This exquisite Swedish painted side table features a rectangular top, discreetly outlined with a thin geometrical frame, sitting above an exquisite apron, carved with two layers of motifs. The smooth surface of the scooped motifs of the top contrasts beautifully with the textured treatment of the waterleaves. The table is raised on four slender cylindrical tapering legs, adorned with elongated waterleaves at the top and carved rosettes on the knees. The discreet fluting of their sides lead the eye down the legs in a graceful movement. 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. With its clean lines and lovely carved décor, this Swedish neoclassical painted side table circa 1860 will bring an elegant touch to any home, whether placed in a bedroom, living room or hallway.
