Swedish 19th c Mora Floor Clock-Very Nice!
A Swedish wood carved Mora floor clock from the 19th century. This antique Mora clock from Sweden is a very nice clock; it is taller than the typical Mora clock and features details more closely associated with a Fryksdahl clock. This grandfather clock has a nicely carved top bonnet, a raindrop-shaped door and belly, curved trim accentuates the neck and belt lines, and it is raised up on base with gently scalloped front and open areas at the sides. Hand-painted numbers and an inscription with original owners initials and makers mark, along with beautifully ornate hands decorate the face. This piece has a scraped finish which allows much of the wood grain to show, with a pale gray trim accent. 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 special Swedish Mora clock, circa 1830's, will be a great decorative addition to any home or office!
