Antique Mora Clock Swedish Biedermeier Ormolu 1800s Gustavian Grandfather



Antique Swedish mora clock from early 1800s in Biedermeier style with natural finish and ormolu style detail with a great shape body and a good face with lots of detail include the belly sun motif and nicely detailed hood. Measures: 220cm. It has the Classic extended belly of a traditional Swedish mora clock. It also has a phineal detail on the hood. This is a very rare piece. The clock body paint has the usual wood movement and paint distressing found in clocks of this age. The face is good quality and has some small enamel loss as shown. We will fit a battery chiming mechanism to the clock for you as the original mechanisms are very unreliable. We can do this without any damage to the clock and you will still receive the original clock mechanism separately 'as is' with the clock to keep in a cupboard. The extra face shown is for sale separately and not included with the clock.
