A Swedish Folk Art Drop-Leaf Work Table with Colorful Original Painted Surface, Dated 1846

This one of a kind table from the mid 19th century is an unusual piece of folk art that has survived in remarkably good condition. The top with a dark blue raised edge is painted in vibrant stripes of red, blue and orange, with the white base color showing through. The single drawer has a red painted knob and the date 1846. As if the decoration on top wasn’t enough, the artist added colorful blue circles on the inside edges of the dropped leaves so that one sees color when the table is closed. There is also a unique adjustable mechanism that holds up one of the leaves. This table was likely used as a work surface since there is paint loss on the center and one leaf and chopping marks are in evidence.
