An early 19th-century Swedish longcase wood clock. This Swedish clock from Norrbotten County, Sweden (Northern region) features an exaggerated and raised wreath design carved in its center, atop and surrounded by a leaf motif. This clock retains it's original metal face, hands and movement with large hand-drawn numerals. The circular face is signed by the maker "AAS" with the town of Mora. The belly is subtly curved with a circular glass center, allowing the pendulum to be viewed, and the clock rests on a flat geometric style triangular base. The clock has been dry scraped, with primary colors being grey and pale white. This tall clock has a lot of simplicity and purity in its lines and finish. This is a beautiful example of the classic Swedish style.

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.
