About

A Swedish Gustavian style painted wood drop-front secretary from the 19th century, with dentil molding, reeded accents and multiple drawers. Born in Sweden during the 19th century, this exquisite painted Gustavian style secretary features a rectangular top with canted corners in the front, sitting above a drop-front desk that opens up to reveal a multitude of drawers surrounding a central door. The lower section presents three dovetailed drawers adorned with reeded accents echoed from the top. Flanked with canted side posts, the secretary is raised on short tapered feet angled in the front. The piece is painted in a soft color typical of the Scandinavian taste for light palettes, aiming at brightening the homes during the dark winters of Sweden. With its clean lines and convenient features, this Swedish Gustavian style 19th century drop-front secretary will bring a touch of relaxing elegance to any home, whether placed in a bedroom, living room or office.
