19th Century Swedish Gustavian Style Pair of Painted Bedside Chests

THE STORY: 

A beautiful pair of Swedish Gustavian style painted chests from the 19th century with carved guilloché detail around the apron; canted corner posts; and square, fluted legs. Circa 1880.  Each chest has three drawers, brass hardware and original locks with keys. 

The Gustavian style, named after King Gustav III of Sweden, is a restrained interpretation of the French Louis XV and Louis XVI style. King Gustav III was enamored with the neoclassical style and therefore created his own interpretation for Sweden.
