Swedish Fryksdahl Clock w/Carved Accents
A tall Swedish Fryksdahl floor clock from the 19th century. This Fryksdahl clock from Sweden showcases ornamental carvings throughout, which enhance and accentuate this shapely clock. The crest or crown features a pierced carving in foliage inspired motif, a carved draping with tassels flank a central star at the underside of the face at the neck. The curvy belly, with window, is adorn with a burst of carved leaves at it's top, while underside of the belly is defined at the waist with belted molding with a decoratively carved center piece and petite volute sides. This nicely curved clock, typical of the Fryksdahl style, rests on a flat base. This clock has a blue and grey palette with taupe coloring accenting the trim. 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 Swedish 1820's Fryksdahl clock would be lovely in a living room or foyer.
