Swedish Neoclassical Style Painted Commode with Guilloche Frieze, circa 1880

A Swedish neoclassical style painted wood three-drawer commode from the late 19th century with guilloche motifs. This Swedish neoclassical style commode features a rectangular raised top with canted corners in the front, sitting above an exquisite guilloche frieze running along the three sides. Three drawers with brass ring pulls flanking a central escutcheon make up the façade, while a recessed vertical cartouche adorns each side post. The commode is raised on four short tapered feet that are angled in the front, and straight in the back. The chest 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 clean lines and delicate décor, this Swedish neoclassical style commode, circa 1880 will bring a graceful presence to any home, whether placed in a bedroom, living room or hallway.
