An early example of a 19th century Swedish Fryksdahl clock from Värmland with an elaborate crown. This Fryksdahl clock showcases exquisite carvings throughout, which enhance and accentuate this shapely clock. The crest or crown features carvings of a large rose and several delicate leaves curving below, and a central star decorates the underside of the face at the neck. This nicely curved clock, typical of the Fryksdahl style, rests on a broad flat base. This clock is dry scraped and shows the beautiful natural wood grain throughout. One of the most beautiful design features of this particular clock is its sun-washed face. This clock came from a home where it kept watch for over 100 years and the morning sun would come through the curtains each day and gently kiss its face. What a legacy, and what a gorgeous addition to any home!  Circa early 1800's

Red Friksdahl - Circa 1800

SKU: N-8

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.
