A pair of Swedish painted three-drawer chests from the 19th century, with dentil moldings, fluted semi columns and bracket feet. Born in Sweden during the 19th century, each of this pair of chests features a slightly raised rectangular top, sitting above a delicate dentil molding. The façade presents three graduated drawers each fitted with brass hardware and flanked with fluted semi columns that seem to be emerging from the side posts. The ensemble is raised on four ogee bracket feet that create a perfect visual conclusion. The chests are painted in a light and slightly distressed color, typical of the Scandinavian taste for soft palettes, aiming at brightening the homes of Sweden during the dark winters. With their graceful lines and lovely décor, these Swedish 19th century chests will bring a relaxed touch of elegance to any home, whether placed in a living room or bedroom.
