austrian antique painted farmhouse chest
The small farmer`s chest is around 200 years old and comes from a collection of Slovakian wedding chests. Color scheme and floral motif are inspirational. The chest is painted on all three sides, the paste painting technique was used on the outer frame. The original dovetailed base with its unusual cut-outs is remarkable. The painting of the base seems to be random and is therefore attractive. The lock, keys and straps are from the period. An interesting piece of furniture that the viewer does not easily let go of.
