A Swedish Gustavian style painted wood sideboard from the late 19th century, with diamond motifs and carved rosettes.

Two doors, adorned with diamond motifs in protruding frames, open to reveal inner shelves. The piece is flanked with fluted side posts topped with carved rosettes. Painted in a nicely distressed soft color typical of the Scandinavian taste for light palettes, the sideboard is raised on short tapered feet angled in the front.
