austrian antique painted farmhouse chest
The simple wedding chest from Styria pleases with its fragrant floral motifs. The color canon blue, red and white is just as charming as it is rare. The lid is decorated with two painted flower fields and the Christ monogram IHS in the middle. It is actually the first three capital letters of “Jesus” in Greek. It is dated 1811 in the two front panels. Inside, the chest surprises with five drawers. Lock, key and iron bands correspond to the solid simplicity of the chest.
