A Swedish 19th Century Floor Clock
A 19th century Swedish grandfather clock. This Swedish clock features a round-shaped head which has been topped at crest with a carved finial, decorated neck at center, a raindrop shaped belly, with triangular bottom which has been carved in striated patterns. The neck and waist are accentuated with trim molding. The base is flat at sides but has a delicately shallow scalloped front skirt. The clock has a wash of pale blue with hints of green and much of the natural wood grain showing throughout, and cream highlighting various carved 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 1820's Swedish long-case clock would be a great decorative addition to a foyer, living room or family room.
