I was researching an old clock my father has in his possession (images attached). It has been in our family for a long time and my great grandfather who emigrated from Sweden brought the clockwork parts from the family clock that resided in Sweden prior to moving to the US. Apparently, he built the new wooden case when he arrived in the US to house the clock itself and it is supposed to resemble the original case (but I can't be certain that is true). My father doesn't believe it was gold painted originally, and he thinks it may have been light blue in color, but again we really aren't certain. The little Swedish flags were not part of the original design either, I think my grandfather added those when he painted it gold. Also, much of the lead design work that would surround the circular face of the clock has fallen off. My father still has it, but has yet to repair/restore the face to its original look. Based on the date, we believe it was built in 1726 perhaps by someone with the initials SIS (or those stand for the family member that owned it)….we don't know. Anyway, I am trying to find more information on the clock (not for the value), just for the type, style and maybe where it was made in Sweden, etc. Basically, history on the item that I could share with my family. Thank you for taking the time to read this inquiry!
