Antique Gustavian Style Blue Painted Chest of Drawers
This is a nice Gustavian style antique chest of drawers which dates to the 19th century.
The chest is made from oak and is quite heavy and solid, the front fitted with five spacious drawers which are finished with Art Nouveau style drop handles.
I have hand painted this piece in a lovely shade of dusky blue. The paintwork has been lightly distressed for a gently aged look and then colour glazed to add depth and character to the finish.
The chest is in solid structural condition with many minor cosmetic marks of age and use which give it a good amount of character.
The bottom drawer has an old repair which we have left and two of the handles are later replacements.
The back is panelled one of the panels has warped over the years.
The chest is generally rather rustic and well aged.
width- 107cms at the top, 101cms at the base
