Description

Swedish Painted Corner Cupboard. Dated 1819. Made using the finest knot free Red pine.
This elegant piece has been hand painted by Melissa White in keeping with the tradition of Swedish painted furniture.
The English design, called "Saffron Walden", was selected to enhance the character of this unique little corner cupboard. The pattern's delicate lines and shapes are spacious enough to allow the cupboard's patina and layers of old paint to breathe.
The "Saffron Walden" design derives from a floor-to-ceiling black and white Elizabethan wall painting found in a house in Saffron Walden in Essex. This wall painting, in turn, probably came from a craftsman's pattern book of wrought ironwork. The itinerant artists who painted the interiors of Tudor homes often re-purposed designs from various pattern books for use on walls including those of glaziers, embroiderers and metalworkers.
