This is an extremely unique longcase clock from Halsingland in northern Sweden. This clock is from a smaller village called Ljusdal. She was made in 1790 and has been hand scraped to the original blue 18th century paint. This clock is unusual due to its many ornate and highly detailed Rococo style carvings. Only the wealthiest of households could have ordered a clock with this much work added to it, as these details were very expensive to create. The green tinted face glass and the glass in the belly are original 18th century glass.  Comes complete with key, weights, pendulum and clockworks.

Heavily Carved Rococo Ljusdal

SKU: F-9

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.
