Swedish Mora Floor Clock, Circa 1830's
A Swedish Mora grandfather clock from the 19th century. This antique Mora clock from Sweden features a rounded head topped with a carved crown, a subtle teardrop shaped belly, and rests on a flat base. Upward curved molding defines the neck at underside of head, which is repeated about the lower waist. The original metal face has painted roman numerals and ornately decorated metal hands. This piece has a scraped finish to the original wood, with a gold trim color about the face. This clock will make a wonderful decorative object! Though it retains it's original face and movement, the clock is currently not in working condition. However, it could be quartzed (at an additional cost) to keep perfect time. With this option, a new 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 Mora clock, circa 1830's, would be a great decorative addition to any kitchen, living room or foyer.
