Folk art painted chest from northern Sweden made during the early 1800s. The chest has the untouched original paint which is unusually imaginative. The paint is in the shape of clouds and it also has a decorative border around the top. Even the interior is painted with the original paint.
In addition to the paint the chest also has decorative hardware in the shape of iron supports that are painted red. An attractive detail is also the red-painted keyplane which is in the shape of an heart. The grey-toned paint and red accents creates depth and contrast which makes this chest really stand out. It would be an attractive addition to any open space where it most definitively will attract attention. The lock and key are original and in working condition.
