Swedish Painted Mora Clock (1stdibs)

Mora clocks originate in Mora, Sweden, in the late 18th century. The clocks supplemented the income of the farming community with each family specialized in making a piece or pieces of the clock. This Mora is crowned with a trilobe crest above the clock face, which is covered with convex hood glass. The face has a 10.75 inch diameter. The original clock movement has been replaced by a battery driven movement. The paint is original with a folk art foliage motif. Country clocks like this one do not have pendulum belly windows due to the expense of glass, rather a painted door held in place by a lower groove inside the clock and an upper pin covers the belly. A flat base supports the clock. Inside the base, the names Malad and Olaf Ramberg are handwritten with the date Dec. 1924.
