1860s Swedish Light Grey Painted Tilt-Top Table with Round Top and Carved Legs

A Swedish light grey painted tilt-top table from circa 1860 with circular top and turned pedestal mounted on four carved scrolling legs. Heralding from circa 1860, this Swedish tilt-top table is a striking blend of functionality and artistry, bathed in a classic Gustavian light grey hue. At first glance, the table's circular top beckons a closer look, which in turn reveals its clever tilt-top design—a practical feature that allows for space-saving when not in use. Standing 49" tall when folded, it’s a testament to Swedish craftsmanship and the era's ingenuity. The pedestal, masterfully turned, emanates a blend of strength and elegance, drawing the gaze downward to the pièce de résistance—four intricately carved scrolling legs. Each leg is pierced in its upper section, an attention to detail that embodies the Swedish Gustavian style's nuanced beauty. In a modern home, this table could effortlessly serve as an intimate table for a breakfast nook. Alternatively, when not in use, tilt the top and place it against a wall in a foyer or hallway as an artful statement piece. With its versatile design and impeccable craftsmanship, it's a timeless asset to any discerning interior.
