This is a beautiful example of a Swedish Chinoiserie painted clock.  This gorgeous clock would have probably been custom made for the wealthy gentry of the day. The finish is a deep silky black and is covered in rich gold painted details.  It has a small crown on top and very graceful feminine lines throughout. This particular clock has a rare punched tin face complete with Roman numerals and a makers mark. Circa 1800

Black Chinoiserie Beauty - Circa 1800

SKU: B-7

These items are antique and therefore show signs of wear and patinas consistent with their age and history and are sold “as is.” The clock mechanisms are generally basic and rustic in nature. They do not resemble the refined mechanisms of clockmakers of today. As such, they cannot be described as reliable timepieces and are often bought for their style, appearance, and character. While the clock mechanism works, they are sold on the understanding it is not made to the same standards of modern-day clock movements and may require balancing to even the pendulum swing and servicing/cleaning to ensure its continued working.
