Swedish 1790s Painted Vitrine Secretaire with Slant Front Desk and Glass Doors

A Swedish two-part Gustavian period painted vitrine secretaire from the late 18th century, with slant front desk and mullioned glass doors. Created in Sweden during the last decade of the 18th century, this Gustavian secretaire features an elegant cornice with dentil molding and rosettes, sitting above two mullioned glass doors opening to reveal inner painted shelves. The slanted front opens to multiple drawers and compartments surrounding a central 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 1790 will be a great focal point in any living room, foyer or study.
