An antique Scandinavian hand painted oak coopered barrel stick stand with brass banding which has been lovingly painted with stylised floral and foliate decoration throughout, each side there is a landscape depicted, one side with a young man walking down a path with a windmill to the right of him and a cottage to the left, the other side depicts a river with a village behind including a windmill, perhaps another view of the same village.
A hard thing to date precisely but I would say late 18th to early 19th century 1780-1820.
Condition-wise I would say it’s in good vintage order for its age, everything is where it should be. From a decorative standpoint, for me, it is perfect, with just the right amount of wear to the painting on the barrel and verdigris-coloured oxidisation on the metal elements etc. but these could be cleaned up/restored depending on taste.
Measuring 45cm high x 31cm wide x 29cm deep.
