Swedish Fryksdahl Clock w/Scraped Finish
A 19th century Swedish Fryksdahl grandfather clock. This antique Fryksdahl clock from Sweden features a delicate crowned top, carved volute accents, which also adorn the neck area. The clock face has a particularly lovely (and original) face with silver and roman numerals in gold/brass. This clock is dry scraped and shows much of the wood grain showing with traces of cream and gray throughout, and blue 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, 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 a splendid addition to any home.
