Tall Case Clock by Sven Nilsson Morin
Swedish tall case clock in original paint by the artist and carver Sven Nilsson Morin, circa 1810. Morin was a crofter’s son (1747 – 1813) who carved altarpieces and painted churches throughout Småland in addition to clock cases.
The original clock face is painted with arabic numerals and roman numerals to indicate the 15, 30, 45 and 60 minute marks. The case has a rococo form with foliate carving at the base. The beautiful painted detail is in three shades of gray. The original clockworks have been newly cleaned and adjusted.
