Swedish Painted Corner Cupboard. Dated 1819.

Swedish Painted Corner Cupboard. Dated 1819. Made using the finest knot free Red pine.
This elegant piece has been hand painted by Melissa White in keeping with the tradition of Swedish painted furniture.

The English design, called "Saffron Walden", was selected to enhance the character of this unique little corner cupboard. The pattern's delicate lines and shapes are spacious enough to allow the cupboard's patina and layers of old paint to breathe.

The "Saffron Walden" design derives from a floor-to-ceiling black and white Elizabethan wall painting found in a house in Saffron Walden in Essex. This wall painting, in turn, probably came from a craftsman's pattern book of wrought ironwork. The itinerant artists who painted the interiors of Tudor homes often re-purposed designs from various pattern books for use on walls including those of glaziers, embroiderers and metalworkers.

Fleet Gallery deals in a high quality works of Art with a focus on 20th century British Figurative and abstract paintings, prints and sculpture.
Our aim is to offer an interesting collection of 20th century British art. We believe that quality and price do not necessarily go hand in hand. There are a group of first class British painters, still relatively unknown and these are shown alongside the more established names.

Fleet Gallery is based in the exciting area of Norman Road, St. Leonard's-on-Sea, in East Sussex. This is a great little area to explore whether looking for art, furniture, or even just popping along to sample the great cafes or restaurants in the area. St. Leonard's on Sea is a thriving area really worth a visit.
