A Swedish Gustavian style chest from circa 1860 with three drawers, light gray painted finish, reeded accents, dentil molding and tapered legs. Embrace the understated elegance of Swedish Gustavian design with this exquisite chest from circa 1860. Its light gray painted finish with subtle blue tones, reeded accents, dentil molding, and tapered legs embody the refined simplicity, timeless appeal, and touch of Nordic mystique. The chest's rectangular form, crafted from solid wood, exudes a sense of stability and refined minimalism. The light gray painted finish, with its delicate tonal variations and hints of blue hues, adds a touch of serenity, sophistication, and Scandinavian charm to the piece. Three drawers, seamlessly integrated into the façade, provide ample storage space for your personal belongings. The upper drawer, adorned with carved reeded motifs, adds a touch of visual interest and intricate detail to the chest's overall simplicity. The two lower drawers, fitted with linear handles, complement the overall clean lines of the design. The side posts, canted and accented with concentric medallions at the top, add a touch of architectural elegance and visual contrast to the chest's façade. The top, sitting above a carved dentil molding, provides a stable and elegant surface for display or storage. The ensemble rests on tapered legs, angled in the front, lending a sense of lightness and visual appeal. The legs' graceful taper, widening at the top and narrowing towards the bottom, complements the fluidity of the chest's design. -- LiL
