This incredible clock from northern Västerbotten dates to approximately 1745. It’s maker Nils Jakobsson lived in Altjärnsliden. He was a self-taught carpenter and painter and was hired to paint churches. The clocksmith Mathias Liungborgh was also revered in his trade. This clock has woodcut flower carvings and antique mercury glass mirror insets in the front windows. It has retained its original paint to include green, orange, blue, and pale yellow details. This is a museum quality piece that would be considered a national treasure in Sweden.

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.
