This is a gorgeous example of pure Swedish Gustavian style, evidenced by the intricately detailed hand carvings. This beautiful clock has been dry-scraped back to its original grey paint and is from the Frelleborg region of Sweden as shown by the makers mark inscribed on its face. It has a unique half-moon shaped glass door on the body, which is the symbol of salt in Sweden. This tells us that this clock originated in a village near the ocean or seashore. This is a stunning design piece.

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.
