This unusual Swedish tall case clock, with inspiration from the antique Empire Period, imitates a Doric style fluted column, composed of a half-cylindrical body placed on a square base. This type of clock was often painted white with gilt embellishments, as in this example with the vertical gilt carvings. The movement chimes the hour, and one single chime on the half hour. The painted surface is in good condition. The rounded Bonnet gives it a simple, elegant finish. A collector’s find.
