-SOLD- A Gustavian Period Mora Clock with Original Paint from Värmland, Sweden C. 1820

Several decorative motifs are repeated throughout this fine clock, such as the unusual reeding on the door and base. The spectacular crown with an aquatic theme is in full relief on top and is repeated in a carving beneath the door. The detail of a star appears beneath the bonnet and is framed on both sides by delicately carved fan motifs. The movement is in working order and is driven by only one weight, which is rarely seen. It has been dry scraped to the gorgeous original blue paint; that color indicates it was an expensive clock, as blue pigment was the most expensive. The movement has two bells of different tune, and they both strike once on the half hour, and the number of hours on the hour.

We guarantee our clocks to be in fine working condition when they leave our store, a responsibility that we take very seriously. However Swedish clocks with very simple mechanisms often require setup and calibration when they are moved. When you purchase a clock, we cannot guarantee it will not require a professional clock technician to come to your home to set it up and get it running reliably.
