This elegant chest has a lovely patina with traces of the original white paint remaining. The top is slightly raised and recessed, and the top drawer has a convenient divider for storage. The hardware and drawer pulls are typical of the Gustavian period. The chest has a romantic history that is described on the back and on the bottom of the top drawer. It was passed down to five generations of daughters in a family living in Småland, in the south of Sweden, from 1825 to 1945.
