Pair of 18th Century Swedish Painted Wood Two-Drawer Chests with Diamond Motifs

A pair of Swedish painted wood two-drawer chests from the 18th century, with diamond motifs and carved aprons. Born in Sweden during the 18th century, each of this pair of painted chests features a rectangular top sitting above two drawers adorned with horizontal diamond motifs and fitted with classical oval hardware. The side posts are accented with delicate semi-columns, leading our eyes to discover the four tapered legs on which the chests are raised. Painted in a soft color typical of the Scandinavian taste for light palettes aiming at brightening the homes during the dark winters of Sweden, these Swedish 18th century painted chests will bring an elegant presence to any bedroom or living room.
