Flanking the bookcase is a pair of Swedish Gustavian 32″ chests surmounted by unmatched French silver mirrors – all from the 19th century.
Directly in front is a French country chestnut server or console with a narrow depth of only 16.5 inches. On each side are early 1800s beechwood armchairs from France. You’ll recognize the chairs from our personal collection.
Bringing together pieces from different periods and countries! All the painted furniture is Scandinavian. The giltwood mirrors, including the rare pair of sunbursts, are French. Also French is the set of four Klismos style walnut chairs from the 1820s. The garden flower urn and discus thrower come from England – both 20th century.
This handsome copy, executed in cast composition including marble, is after the famous copy in the British Museum of the original Discobolus by Myron, Ca. 460-450 BC. The original Discobolus had his head turned to look towards the disc, while the copy in the BM was wrongly restored. The Greek key frieze on the plinth is striking.
The English urns sit on Swedish sideboard with an elegant form. At 35″ high, this sideboard makes a great server – not too tall or low. BTW, the sideboard / buffet in the dining room should always be higher than the dining room table and, preferably, not matching.
This early painted Directoire mirror has that “just right” patina – a bit chalky, a bit crusty!!
A pair of Swedish Art Moderne clubchairs with bleached oak finish and new linen upholstery shown with a set of three French Ca. 1970s nesting tables in lucite, glass and brass – so chic! The lucite tables could also be placed next to a sofa or low bed.
Let’s check out some of the paintings starting with my favorite one above. This is a late 1800s oil on canvas painting of the Pont Neuf in Paris. By the way, that’s the oldest bridge in Paris – construction started in 1578. The painting is unsigned but definitely Impressionist. It’s so special I had to find the right frame – a period Montparnasse one with finished corners.
Below are two more French paintings – these are just a little later from the early 20th century. Both are signed by listed artists. The spirit of the port painting with an iron crane reminds me of the iconic Eiffel Tower in the heart of Paris.
