Cabinet, birch, brass, Sweden, 1920s
Excellent Swedish cabinet in the so-called Swedish Grace style. The elegantly structured cabinet in curly birch has two front doors above a drawer. The doors are visually divided in three fields each. An original, hand-painted motive decorates each segment with a figurative depiction of per example a book, monopteros or ship. The drawer shows a meander with floral accents. While the cabinet itself has strong visual qualities, the base reaches the same level. Highly decorative elements are carved into the wood and accentuate the legs not only as a constructive necessity, but as important element of the high-quality design. Blackened parts are used to underline selected ornaments.
Swedish Grace is the term for a romantic style that was followed in Sweden in the 1920s. It celebrated the rebirth of neoclassicism in subtle forms. It is characterized by simple, highly elegant forms. The pieces of that time were hand-crafted unique pieces with the use of high-quality materials. Most-known designers of the Swedish Grace are amongst others Axel Einar Hjorth and Carl Malmsten.
