Swedish Painted Wood Karl Johan Bench Scraped to Original Color


A Swedish painted wood bench/sofa of the Karl Johan Period, mid-19th century.  This Swedish bench has been scraped to the original color and features a nice carved pediment as well as rounded arms terminated by Front Columns. This bench is raised on short tapered feet. The Karl Johan period, seen here in the nicely carved and curvy top rail, small finials and the column ornaments, follows the Gustavian Period in Sweden.
