Description:
This is a highly unusual Swedish pine chest or grain bin of serpentine form and dating to the Gustavian period (late 18th/early 19thc). The chest is in excellent condition considering its age and intended use. Most bins have a deeply slanted lid; but this example has a very gently sloping lid which allows it to be used as a table. The chest retians most of its original square nails and was created using a hand plane. The serpentine baroque form is unusual and adds great interest to the piece. There have a been a few very minor restorations to the piece, in keeping with it use and age. The old pine has a beautiful soft patina that will only get better the older it becomes. This piece would make great storage for extra towels or blankets, unused sky clothing, etc. while serving other purposes. (I think it would make a fantastic dog food dispensary but that is because Jones is very spoiled.)
Price: $1,800.00
