Beautiful Gustavian longcase clock from northern Sweden. All the incredible details on this clock are hand carved and very intricate, the carved feather motif on the clock door is very unusual as well. The use of orange paint on this clock is very special too. In Sweden, where it is considered the national color, the most common use of orange is to signify royalty, often telling us that they were created for someone of royal descent or a wealthy household. This clock has its original convex glass on both the face and in the belly. This clock is circa 1790.

Comes complete with weights , pendulum and clockworks.

Late 18th Century Painted Gustavian Mora

SKU: F-13

These beautiful items are antique and therefore show signs of wear and rich 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 today. As such, they cannot be described as reliable timepieces and are often bought for their style, appearance, and character. The clocks are sold on the understanding they are  not made to the same standards of modern-day clock movements and may require balancing to even the pendulum swing once in your home and servicing/cleaning to ensure its continued working.
