Austrian Empire Painted Armoire. c1860. from Giant Mountains Bohemia. circa 1860.
A superb example of marriage cupboard and of a variety of folk decoration that is famous throughout Europe, you can see from the carved detail and the quality of the painting that this was made and decorated by master folk artists.
People sometimes call this ‘cloud marbling’ but I have been told that the characteristic blue-green ground decoration is imitative of light seen through the leaves of poplar trees.
These painted pieces come from the Giant Mountains, an area now in the North of Bohemia, bordering into East Germany and Poland, a multi-ethnic region at the time.
Fitted with shelves.
