Luxury Design, Past & Present
This antique, Swedish folk art cabinet features the original painted, traditional, floral and berry kurbits decoration. Kurbitsmålning or simply kurbits, as with its Norwegian counterpart rosemåling, was most popular from the latter half of the 18th century and until the 1860s. The natural wood on the frame was originally painted. This stepback cabinet was originally a storage piece used to hold kitchenware.
