An exceptional Swedish Rococo serpentine secretaire commode, circa 1780, origin: Stockholm with provenance The Grand Hotel Stockholm, later painted black paint with a gorgeous surface and patina with a sliding shelf above the top drawer and 18th-century hardware. The gutsy cabriole legs are quite expressive and beautiful.
The purity of the design, lacking any adornments, along with the pared-down form of this rococo chest are quintessential elements of Scandinavian antiques. Rococo decorative qualities are apparent yet it is very much Swedish - simple albeit still Rococo in form. One can see the beginnings of a new, national Swedish restraint beginning to appear in these later 18th century pieces.
A very good condition period commode with wear consistent with age, a very unusual find as these commodes rarely come to market.
