A Swedish painted vitrine secretaire from the early 19th century, with slant front desk and mullioned glass doors. Created in Sweden during the first quarter of the 19th century, this secretaire features a carved cornice with dentil molding and geometric motifs, sitting above two mullioned glass doors opening to reveal inner painted shelves. The slanted front opens to multiple drawers and compartments surrounding a central partitioned door, while the lower section showcases four graduated drawers. Raised on four bracket feet and painted in a soft color typical of the Scandinavian taste for light palettes, this Swedish vitrine secretaire circa 1820 will be a great focal point in any living room, foyer or study.
