A Beautiful Swedish Mora 19th Century Clock
A Swedish Mora painted wood clock from the 19th century. This exceptional example of a Mora clock from Sweden features a stacked and raised carved crest, circle head, and curvy raindrop shaped belly with door. The base displays a subtle curviness, and the skirt a nicely carved scalloped design along the front, with flattened base along each side. The round head sits a straight molding that defines the neck, while the waist is similarly trimmed in an upward curve. This piece has a light blue and gray color palette. This clock would be wonderful as is, as a stand-alone decorative object. Though it retains it's original face and movement, it is not currently in working condition. However, the clock 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 Mora clock would be a great decorative addition to any foyer, living room or sun-room.
