This unique Art Nouveau table top stationery cabinet was produced in one of the Scandinavian countries, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and dates to the late 19th century, circa 1890. The densely grained, likely Birch wood exterior features two hand painted figures to the front; the figure in white to the right side positively identified as wearing the traditional costume of Sami, Lapland, the other female possibly is from the Hardanger region of Norway. To the sides we see extensive hand stained stylized floral detailing in traditional Norwegian rosmaling tradition with roses and scrollwork decoration. The hinged doors open to reveal a tiered letter storage rack. This is a one of a kind, good quality item that will display excellently.
Measuring: Width 7 7/8 inch (20 cm) by height 10.25 inch (26 cm). Depth 4.25 inch (11 cm).
Condition: Minor surface wear, repaired section to the top right corner of the left door which causes the door to catch a little. To the back of the cabinet is a diagonal surface scratch and small patch of old glue. Complete with a key, however the lock does not work.
