This is a "Fryksdalen" clock; the name is from the area where it was carved and created. This particular style of clock was only made in Fryksdalen, Värmland, located in West Sweden on the border of Norway. This beautiful clock has original paint to include a lovely cinnamon red color body with soft green and blue accents. Another fantastic piece of this clocks history is the maker's monogram and original art found inside the clock's body. You can see where one artist inscribed their initials in 1820 in black ink, and then in 1871, a new owner put their initials over the prior engraving in an umber ink. There is also a small folk art bird painted inside the clock as well. This charming clock is full of history and stories and will be the focal point of any room. Circa 1820.

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.
