Mora Clock from Matfors

Dry scraped to the original painting, Sweden circa 1780. It has unusually well made locks and hooks in forged iron.

Many clocks were hung on the wall in old times hence the hole in the back that often can be found. No one knows for sure why but a good guess is that the floors were uneven and the mechanism is dependent on being horizontal to work properly with the pendulum. This clock was also made to be hung which means it can’t be placed freely on the floor, as the back is shorter than the front to accommodate the floor rims. It is on the other hand ideal to be placed against a wall.
