Mora Clocks

Hello everyone!
I've been in the search for a Mora Clock for some time now, can't find one, or at lease not one cheap enough to buy it.  I'm gonna leave you now with some pictures of my favorites while I keep dreaming of one in my living room or.... somewhere else in the house:



Pictures from The Swedish Furniture





Pictures from the Swedish Interior Design



This one is from Antiquaire on line

This if from Alives Design

Aren't they gorgeous! They cost thousands of dollars due to their history, they were invented in the town of Mora, Stockholm in the 1700s, some of them are very old and cost a lot, some others are reproductions, but still very expensive.  If I can't afford one, I'm making my own or I will change my name to Mora LOL!

Remember, today is 100th post celebration!!!!

  1. Ido, we have both wanted a Mora clock for some time. Just like you, it's way out of our budget so we have been on the look out for a bargain. We'll let you know if we find one. Have a beautiful day. Thanks for your wonderful comment today.

  9. Can one have too many clocks? I was sitting in my living room with a friend the other day and she said you like clocks don't you? I looked around and said yes. I think the ticking was getting to her. Of course I no longer hear it. I must have upwards of 50 clocks scattered around my house. But no Mora, want one though. Still looking but I am with you, I may have to make one.

  19. Just turn the chair over - take out the screws holding the seat to the frame. Then do the monotonous and time consuming job of removing all the fabric staples holding the old fabric to the seat and foam...Take the OLD piece of fabric and lay it righ on top of your new fabric as your pattern, and cut. Be sure before you cut that you have the new fabric turned the right way that you want it facing out on the chair. ALSO before you staple it BACK on to the seat. I stapled the fabric on one of my chairs facing the wrong way, and had to remove ALL THE STAPLES AGAIN!! ay -ya-ya....was I ticked at myself ..or what! I use a tool that is a brad nailer and stapler that attaches to my husband's air compressor...makes it very easy! GOOD LUCK!! :-)

  20. Hi Ido,
    They are very beautiful...A while back my hubby bought me a clock that reminds me of one of these from Walmart, of all places...But mine is a bit shorter...I've been thinking of ways to make it taller and repainting it to get the same effect as these clocks...You'll have to let me know if you were serious about making your own...Maybe you can share some of your ideas :-)

    Hugs and Kisses,
    ♥Ana

  33. I just found one on Ebay.Not sure what your budget is but it was pretty affordable for a reproduction. I found a beautiful one in a an antique store in Clearwater, Fl. Very affordable but shipping to the west coast made it unatainable, until I win the lottery.
