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.
