Depth 9 1/2" at the base
Charismatic Swedish Mora clock, c.1850. Handcarved crown. Original working lock and brass key plate. I believe the face was repainted at some point, because the condition is simply too good:
The 8 day works are cleaned and running well. We had to replace the pendulum, too worn to continue doing its job.
All pegged construction. There is a hole on the back near the top of the clock and one in the center of the back. These were used to suspend the clock from a peg or hook on the wall. Photos in the slideshows.
On the clock face is written 'Hron Frost'. I don't know anything about this person. The painter or owner perhaps?
The body is fully restored and in excellent condition. Awaiting your choice of finish.
