Late 18th C. Swedish Wooden Clock
A late 18th century Swedish wooden clock. This Swedish rectangular head wooden clock features a bonnet shaped crest, over an exquisite pewter ring face with single hand. The clock has a scraped paint finish with various colors such as dark green, cobalt blue, red and grey. Some traces of wood show through the layers of paint. The tear drop shaped door is decorated with an inverted heart motif. The clock rests on a base with scrolled motifs in its lower part. This clock would be wonderful as a decorative object and 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 hand would be too heavy to carry the quartz movement, so it would be changed to two 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.
