Pair of Biedermeier Painted Chests of Drawers, Germany circa 1830


This outstanding pair of antique Biedermeier chests with refreshed paint possess a wonderfully modern appeal. Each chest has three large drawers each with a raised edge. Please notice that the upper drawer on each chest is centered on a rampant lion facing in opposite directions which is always the indication of a true pair. The top drawer also features a bold scale Greek Key pattern painted in a deeper color for contrast. Both the sides and the middle and lower drawer are highlighted with a simple design of a boxed rectangle with defined corners. The top of each chest also features a painted design set in the centre consisting of an oval medallion flanked by winged figures. The reference to ancient mythological times is unmistakeable by the artist's use of both architectural and figural motifs. Whether flanking a bed, doorway or window this pair of antique chests were always meant to be viewed from multiple directions with equal pleasure and admiration.
