A Cupboard from Jämtland Sweden in Original Coral Paint, C. 1810

The vivid original paint on the exterior combines with beautiful details that create a piece that is a standout example of its era. Jämtland is a county in Sweden, and during the winter, its towns get an average of only four and half hours of sunshine. To combat this, the Swedes used bright and vivid paint, as seen on this piece, to add cheer to the darkest days of the year. The interior paint, although not original, is a pleasing pale green. The top doors open to reveal a curving silverware and glass rack, four shelves, as well as two small drawers with a unique application, instead of sliding outwards, they sit free and can be slid to the side and only then, out. The top is crested by an angular pediment with a flat top, showing Gustavian influence, and the moulding beneath it is subtly coved. The cabinet is in two parts, and has pleasing proportions, not too tall or wide. The bottom cupboard with two doors is perfect for storage.
