Swedish tall case clock dry-scraped to natural wood. The artist and carver Sven Nilsson Morin, circa 1810, created this clock. Morin was a crofter’s son (1747–1813) who carved altarpieces and painted churches throughout Småland in addition to making clock cases. The original clock face is painted with Arabic numerals to indicate the 15, 30, 45 and 60-minute marks. The case has a Rococo form with beautiful foliate carving at the base. Fluted crown, beaded face, carved flames on the skirt. This beautiful clock is a stunning piece of history.

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.
