antique swedish painted pine housemaid's storage cupboard 1890




Item Ref



A little more unusual than most, in design and construction, a perfectly proportioned pine storage cupboard, linen press or housemaid's cupboard.
The cupboard was most likely originally used as a utilitarian storage unit, in a wealthy bourgeois townhouse, to store linens or other household items, the configuration and the four cupboard formation point to that.
The set of three dividing drawers are an added bonus, handy for storage of smaller items.
The styling is late 19th century, verging on Art Nouveau, the interesting swept lines of the minimalist decor making it a one-of-a-kind piece.
The cabinet is well built, the doors and drawers working well, original metal snap catches, original locks and single key ( working both locks, nicely child proof !), the interior retaining the original red-ish stain and moveable shelves.
The turned feet are replacements, not added by us, done some time ago.
A versatile cupboard, for which a use can surely be found in many locations, due to slim size and reasonable depth.
975mm wide
1945mm high
485mm deep
