19th century painted Swedish Mora clock
19th century painted Swedish Mora clock sold in working order. Gustavian Mora clocks are a type of longcase clock which were made in, and derived their name from, the town of Mora in Dalarna province, Sweden. Production began in the late 18th century and continued through most of the 19th finally
The cooperative manufacture of clocks in Mora arose as a source of supplemental income for the farm families of this agriculturally poor region. Each family would “specialise” by making one or more of the parts required. A finished clock would often be sold without a caseﾗthe buyer then arranging for one to be made, often locally. This helps to explain the great variety of cases that exist.
