This is a beautiful weathered white Gustavian clock with original paint and soft red accents on the carved details. This clock has a large carved urn sitting on a detailed lattice crown with ribbons and geometric shapes on the case. One of the most unusual things about this clock is the face. The maker decided to leave his mark on this clock by replacing the traditional numbers for his monogram. You can read his full name circling the clock face: A.S. Gustav Rose. The provenance is also enhanced by the towns full name being inscribed on the face, as well as the date of 1800. This clock numbered (#29) by the clockmaker.

A.S. Gustav Rose Swedish Clock - Circa 1800

SKU: B-2

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.
