Description

North of Sweden Mora Clock


This antique Mora clock comes from the North of Sweden where the Mora clocks were characterised by their tall height and detailed paint patterns.
A delicate painted pattern in gold characterises this clock which has been painted on a matt black background.

This Mora clock has its original working mechanism, two cast iron weights and also a single pendulum.
The clock has 2 hammers which strike 2 separate bells and makes a 'ting tang' sound on the hours.
The clock chimes the hours for each hour of time and works on a 7-8 day movement (ie it needs rewinding every 7th or 8th day).
There are viewing windows to the side of this clock through which it is possible to see the original mechanism working.
The clock was made by Olof Beckman who has added his name to the face of this clock. It was made in the town of Linkoping whch is below the makers name on the clck face. The original hands for this clock have now been attached to the clock and the face has been cleaned.
