White Gustavian Desk from Sweden in Pine
Height : 76 cm
Length : 99 cm
Width : 61 cm
White gustavian desk from Sweden made during the late 18th century, around 1790 to 1800. The desk is pine with distressed white and black paint as well as a genuine patina after almost 250 years of use. Made in the northern part of the country, the table is classic gustavian with straight clean lines without decorations. The corners of the table top are rounded at the front but still angular at the back. Some traces of use. The drawer also has the customary ink stain inside. For some reason the early owners always seem to spill ink inside the drawers from ink pots which were the staple stationery around the time. Today it’s a charming proof the desk was well used. Untouched authentic condition. Height to rim is 61 cm.
