Exceptional Oscar Nilsson Oak Cabinet, Sweden, 1940s

On Hold


This cabinet designed by Oscar Nilsson and executed by the master cabinetmaker Jacob Wickman was produced in Sweden in the early 1940s. The exterior of the oak cabinet is composed of eight geometrically profiled frames, four on the front and two each on the sides. The refined details and the craftsmanship of the woodwork make this an exceptional and rare piece of the Swedish modern period.
