A Northern Swedish 19th Century Clock
A 19th century Swedish wooden floor clock. This tall antique clock from northern Sweden features a raised bonnet of fanned leaves at it's top, and decorated with foliage and floral bouquet about the neck and upper chest. There is trim molding which accentuates the neck and waist. The belly has a glass window at it's center, allowing the pendulum to be viewed. The clock is presented upon volute carved feet. The clock has a scraped finish, with traces of cream colored paint which show through areas with the original wood grain. 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 Northern Swedish 19th century clock would be a lovely addition to a bedroom, living area, or entry hall.
