Seller: rockerwriter (2,081) 100%, Location: Cheltenham, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 153047789690 Yes. You read it correctly - £300 for a very elegant and early - 1713 - Mora long case clock. The case, repainted in Annie Sloan chalk paint, and gilt, is in first class condition, with a sympathetic repair to the base. The metal dial has a pewter chapter ring with full minute numbering and is signed and dated ANDERS GOTBARG 1713. The matching brass hands are typically (and correctly) Swedish in their design. The ridiculously low price is because the clock runs for a couple of hours and then stops. Mora clocks are notoriously sensitive and temperamental and I have so much work backing up that I have neither the time nor the inclination to get to the bottom of the problem. Plus, I need the space. (I can’t believe I’m doing this!) So I’m selling it as a non runner and / or a decorative and thoroughly interesting piece of furniture.Obviously, because the going train doesn’t run, it doesn’t operate the strike. But you can sound the strike yourself - a delightful ‘ting-tang’ sound with two hammers on two bells - by pulling the pull repeat cord. (See photo). It’s 207 cm tall, 44 cm across at its widest point and stands 23 cm off the wall It has its pendulum, weights, even winding key in case you wanted to have the movement (which is complete) professionally repaired at some later date. At which time, you’d have a clock worth way over £1,000.A quick eBay search lists 3 battery-operated Moras at $1,795, $2,749 and £470. 2 non-working at £1,295 and £1,200. And 2 repro and battery-operated, at £560 and $749. Sadly I can’t deliver. But I’ll happily work with your own courier. Or you could pick up (and pay cash) in leafy Cheltenham I would prefer cheque or cash on collection.. Any questions, more photographs… don’t hesitate to email. Age: Antique, Pre-1900, Clock Type: Longcase/ Grandfather Clock
