Set of Four 18th Century Swedish Gustavian Square Back Chairs in Original Paint


A stunning set of four 18th century Swedish dining chairs from the Gustavian period, hand-scraped to original paint. This is a beautiful set of period chairs with open-work, splat backs and straight, tapered legs with cross stretchers. Blue-green and ivory painted patina. 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.
