Abstract [sv]

Möbelsnickaren Johannes Fundberg var verksam i Dalsland under 1800-talets första decennier, där han tillverkade ovanliga och vackra möbler åt välbärgade bönder.Som skråutbildad stadssnickare under det sena 17- och tidiga 1800-talet i Sverige var man hårt styrd av snickarämbetets stränga regler. För de hantverkare som ville skapa sin möbelkonst efter eget sinne var den enda möjligheten att arbeta på landsbygden, där tvånget att följa modets växlingar inte fanns.Uppsatsen ger en kort beskrivning av möbelstilarnas växlingar under det sena 17- till tidiga 1800-talet hos de högre stånden och hur möbeltillverkningen hos allmogen utvecklades under samma period. Fundbergs personliga historia och förutsättningarna för hans yrkesverksamhet beskrivs, för att sedan gå vidare till hans materialval och tekniker. Ett golvur som man nyligen insett kan vara tillverkat av Fundberg undersöks. Detaljer i möblernas konstruktion och skådeytor jämförs. Uppsatsen innehåller även en dokumentation av ett antal av hans alster.

Abstract [en]

Cabinetmaker Johannes Fundberg was active in the Swedish province of Dalsland during the first decades of the 19th century, where he made unusual and beautiful furniture for wealthy farmers. The trained city cabinetmaker in the late 18th and the early 19th century was restricted by the strict rules of the guild. For the craftsmen who wanted to create furniture of his own mind the only way was to work in rural areas, where the compulsion to follow fashion fluctuations did not exist. The paper gives a brief description of the fashionable furniture styles in the late 18th to the early 19th century amongst the higher social classes and how furniture manufacturing in rural areas developed during the same period.The personal history of Fundberg and the conditions of his profession are described, and then the report moves on to his choice of materials and techniques. A clock which was recently discovered might be made by Fundberg is investigated. Details of his furniture design and surface decorations are compared. The paper also contains a documentation of a number of his works.
