Early 19th C. Floor Clock, Central Sweden
An early 19th century Swedish grandfather clock with scraped finish. This antique floor clock from central Sweden is from the 1820's and features a carved & raised crest, its original round metal face & movements, a raindrop shaped belly, a curvy triangular bottom supported upon a mostly-flat base with subtle carving at front skirt. Carved trim about the neck and underside of the belly, accentuate the lovely curves of this piece. The clock has a scraped finish, with wood grain having traces of white and green throughout. This clock would be wonderful as a decorative object. Though it retains its original face and hands, it is not currently in working condition. However, the clock can be quartzed to keep perfect time, at an additional cost (please contact us for information prior to your order). Should you decide to make this a working clock, a quartz battery would be added behind the face. And because the original hands are too heavy to carry the quartz movement, they would be changed to black hands, but in a similar style. The clock would then chime (the chime can be made to turn off or on- 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 Central Swedish clock stands approximately 6.5 feet in height.
