19th C. Swedish Floor Clock, Scraped Finish
A Swedish grandfather clock with scraped finish from the 19th century. This antique clock from Sweden features a low profile reed carved crown adorning it's head, a teardrop-shaped belly with window at it's center, and is supported upon a flat platform base. The round-shaped head sits on a neck with downward curved molding, which is repeated about the waist in a similarly trimmed upward curve. This piece has a scraped finish with gray trim color and gold accenting the inner belly ring. This clock would be wonderful as a 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 19th century Swedish floor clock would be a great decorative addition to any foyer, living room or hall.
