Swedish Biedermeier / Empire Chest of Drawers in Quilted Birch, circa 1820

$6,750

About

A very handsome and small Swedish Biedermeier chest of drawers in book-matched quilted birch that is of a golden honey-color. Offers a total of five drawers, with three flanked by turned pilasters and two that are somewhat secret as they form part of the top and bottom aprons - and are further obscured since they have no hardware. Chest rests on original bun feet. Sweden, circa 1820. Restored in our workshop with a French-polish finish. Comes with working locks and key. Makes a great end table! Measures: 35" wide x 20" deep x 36 1/2" high.
