This month was my graduation ceremony for my Masters degree. My mother and my aunt were able to see me walk and also stay here and branch out for some European travel. I was able to come into contact with a women who had a huge shipment of authentic Swedish Mora clocks that she was selling at amazing prices coming from a dealer who finds the old clocks all over Sweden.
Mora clocks were originally made by Swedish farming families in the late 18th century. They were often made in pieces and given as customizable gifts for special occasions. It wasn't unusual for these clocks to be painted several times throughout their lives. I noticed the clock that I purchased started off with a red paint, and then white, and then it's current color, light green. These paint jobs could have been done decades ago or over a century ago as the color preferences for these clocks when they were made were in pastel colors. Much like today's popular paint colors.
