Vintage Gustavian Gilt Cartel Wall Clock

~ Swedish / German - Circa 1950 ~

~~ Excellent condition, fully overhauled ~~

A very decorative Gilt cartel clock - made in Sweden in the first half of the 20th century. Good quality - the case is gesso work - plaster and wood, gilded. The high spots have worn and there are some losses of gilding and plaster only add to the antique appearance. Pendulum is visible through the window below the dial.

The clock has the appearance of a French early 19th century example, and would fit in very well with any 18th/19th century French interior. The style is from the Swedish Gustavian revival of the 20th century. It is decorated with roses within floral swags and a ribbon.

The movement is of excellent quality and is German, runs for 8 days and strikes on a bell. We have serviced and test run it.

Condition of the clock is good. The gilding is in good condition, but not over bright. There are some losses to the gesso work that has been touched in, these help to give the clock an antique look. 

The Gustavian style became popular again during the early 20th century; much thanks to the Swedish painter Carl Larsson who's illustrated watercolours of his own house exerted great influence.

Complete with pendulum, bell and a suitable key. Full setting up instructions supplied if required.
