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:

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.

  2. I'd never heard of these clocks, but now I'm a fan of them too! Hope you find one for a song!


  3. saw one's like that at Brimfiels antique show on the weekend. He was dealer from Sweden. Also, purchased a mahogonay version for my client before, ( on my blog)...

    Love your pics,

    and great music!

  4. They are precious, not wise of his existence

  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.

  10. Amazingly beautiful. What wonderful pictures.

  11. Mora clocks are so gorgeous! Thank you for sharing your pictures!

    Hope you can find one soon.
    Have a great night.

  13. I just love Mora clocks....they are just so beautiful. Really lovely pictures!

  14. I, too, would give my first born to own one of these babies(just kidding....most days hehehe). I hope someday we both have one to grace our homes. These photos are just wonderful. Thanks for sharing:-)


  15. I've always loved these clocks too! I knew they were hard (impossible) to find here. I should have known how pricey they would be. Fun post!

  16. So Happy to hear the History of this Beautiful clock.... I see why you want one so much~ Thanks for sharing, Hope you get a chance to stop by...

  17. Hello Ido, Happy White Wednesday! So happy to have found your beautiful blog. I love this post on the Mora Clock and love that you are willing to change your name...LOL!! A new follower that can't wait for your next post.

  18. LOVE these clocks. It's the shape!! We both will keep our eyes peeled and our antenna up, yes?
    Thanks for sharing the great pics, ENJOYED!!

  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,

  21. Happy WW!!!

    These are wonderful...I've just added a new item to my wish list!

  22. Saw your clock photos at White Wednesday, they are wonderful! Never new the name, have seen a few and they are pricey. Hope you find one or come up with a way to duplicate one, good luck! Your blog is lovely. Will come back often.

  23. They really seem popular right now. I sure hope you find one you like.

  24. I totally love these clocks and now know what they are called! I'll keep my fingers crossed that you get the one you want in the near future.

    Hope you're having a great week.

  25. These clocks look like they escaped from Alice in Wonderland, I haven't seen them here yet, if I do I'll give you a shout.
    Love your blog!

  26. I do love Mora clocks too! They are soooo pricey though, aren't they? I love their romantic look!
