Early 19th C. Swedish Long Case Clock
An early 19th century Swedish grandfather clock scraped to its original blue color. This antique tall clock from Western Sweden features a raised bonnet with flattened top, adorned in reeded carvings, atop a round-shaped head, typical tear-drop shaped belly. Both the neck and waist are accentuated with trim molding, emphasizing their curvatures, and the body is supported by its base with open cut-out details along the front and middle of each side. The clock has a scraped finish down to its original blue color. This clock would be a wonderful decorative object. Though it retains its 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 early 19th century Swedish long-case clock would be a great decorative addition to your home or office.
