This charming Mora clock is made exceptional by small touches of details such as the emblematic carving of a dragonfly on the belly, flowing hips, and the carved dots that circle the door of the bonnet, the crest, and the glass eye for the pendulum. The paint is original, showing its age nicely with a well worn patina. Blue was the most expensive pigment at the time and was saved for the best pieces of furniture. The movement features a lovely bell that chimes the half hour and the hour. While the movement does run, it needs to be serviced if accurate timekeeping is desired and therefore this clock is sold as an object of art.
