Mora Clock with Signed Dial

$ -- Sold --

Early Mora clock, circa 1800, signed “J. Grundin” on the dial, along with bold arabic numerals marking the hours and smaller ones marking the minutes. The case was beautifully carved in Västergötland in the west of Sweden.  The case door is convex, without the usual glass window, and the interior shows the marks of the tools used to hollow the “belly.”  The base features foliate carving on either side and a flower in bud in the center.  All original with very early painted surface.

Unfortunately, the original works came to us with major components missing, and our clockmaker was not able to restore them.  They have been replaced with new brass 8-day works  which chime the hours and half-hours.
