19th C. Swedish Fryksdahl Clock
A 19th century Swedish floor clock. This Swedish Fryksdahl 19th century clock is topped with a stylized acanthus leaf wreath carving at its crest that has subtle traces of gilding. The neck is decorated with rosettes and volutes. The one-hinged tear-drop shaped door opens from left to right. The clock rests on a flat base. The body of the clock is grey green with some light blue accents. The trim is of a darker grey green. This clock would be a wonderful decorative object. Though it retains it's original face and movement, it is not currently in working condition, but can be quartzed to keep perfect time, for an additional cost. A quartz battery would then be added behind the face. The original hands are too heavy to carry the quartz movement, so they would be changed to black hands, similar in style. The clock would then chime (the chime can be turned off even though the sound is quite delightful. A pendulum selected to work with the quartz movement would be added behind the glass opening. This antique Swedish Fryksdahl floor clock would be lovely in a living room or entry hall.
