A Swedish Gustavian period painted buffet from the late 18th century, with canted side posts, diamond motifs and dentil molding. Created in Sweden during the last quarter of the 18th century, this painted buffet features a slightly raised top with canted corners, sitting above a delicate dentil molding. Two drawers rest above a pair of double doors, each adorned with diamond motifs with reeded accents. These doors open to reveal a painted interior with inner shelves offering convenient storage opportunities. Raised on short tapered feet angled in the front, this buffet is painted in a soft color typical of the Scandinavian taste for light palettes aiming at brightening the homes during the long winters. With its clean lines and lovely finish, this Swedish Gustavian buffet circa 1780 will bring an undeniable touch of relaxed elegance to any home.
