19th century Swedish Gustavian period chest of drawers in beautiful, time-worn and old paint with original brass hardware. The top is framed by egg and dart detail and the chest is raised upon tapered and fluted legs. Circa 1800.
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.
