Swedish Clock with Carved Crest
An 1820's Swedish painted wood clock. This Swedish clock from Norrbotten county, Sweden (Northern region) features a handsomely carved exaggerated crest, a circular face and neck is accented with additional trim. The belly is softly rounded with an accentuated carved frame about the circular glass center, allowing the pendulum to be viewed. The clock rests upon a flat base. This 19th century clock has been dry scraped, with primary colors being a pale celery with cream and muted red accents. This clock would be a wonderful decorative object. Though it retains it's original face and movement, it is not currently in working condition. However, it 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 19th century Swedish clock would be a great decorative addition to a foyer, living room or hallway.
