Drop Leaf Table in Neoclassical Style

Drop leaf table in neoclassical style. The table is folk art with a leaf and a drawer in the rim. Decor all around with hand wrought riveted hinges in iron. Painted pine. Untouched original condition with original paint. Natural wear and patina after 250 years that only time can produce. Made in northern Sweden in the province Hälsingland around 1800 to 1810. Healthy and solid frame. The leaf is 68 cm wide and the top 58 cm making the total possible width 126 cm.

The thought from the carpenter was that the drawer should be hidden in the rim and therefore it doesn’t have a lock. The light grey paint was high fashion in Sweden during the late 18th century and a while into the 19th century. That was during the neoclassical period, which also corresponds to the Swedish gustavian era.

Neoclassical Folk Art Sideboard from Northern Sweden

Neoclassical folk art sideboard from northern Sweden. The sideboard is from the years between 1780 to 1790. Original paint. The model is straight with the classic neoclassical decor. Angled corners with ribbed decor. Healthy and solid frame. The latch on the door is original and it’s always been without a lock. The sideboard has a very good patina that can only be achieved naturally with time.

Looking at the paint it’s not one solid colour but rather a mix of multiple shades which in turn gives it great depth and dimension. That unique combination only exists on this sideboard and is a product of age where each new addition and old wear is authentic. While this is a neoclassical folk art sideboard it also has some rococo influences from the previous era. Note the curved edge along the bottom. Additionally the sideboard is usually low at only one meter in height and also wider than you’d typically see.

Blue Long Case Clock – Rococo and Neoclassical

Blue long case clock from the transitional time between rococo and neoclassicism. Original blue paint and natural patina. The paint is slightly distressed after 250 years of use. Hand carved wooden decorations around the glass on the door and around the hood. Original mechanism, weights and pendulum. Working at the time of writing. We leave no guarantees on the future functions. The clock face have some age related wear – see pictures. Healthy and solid frame. Made in northern Sweden around 1790. Minor dry cracks along the skirt.

The clock is quite rare, both with the mixture of rococo and neoclassical elements but also because of the blue paint. Blue pigments used to be very expensive and only the most wealthy households could afford them. The curved shape and meticulously hand carved decorations are also indications of the high quality.
