This tall and stately late 18th century longcase clock has beautiful Gustavian carvings on its entire body. The surface of this clock has been dry scraped back to traces of its original white paint, the result is a very natural wood finish. Manufactured in northern Sweden, circa 1790. Comes complete with weights, pendulum and clockworks. 

Late 18th Century Gustavian Clock

SKU: F-7

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. While our clock mechanisms have all been cleaned and serviced by a master clocksmith, they 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.
