Let me tell you about another thing I reeeeally like: Mora Clocks. They are today, I believe, almost as trendy as in their heyday, i.e. late 18th, early 19th century.
The Mora Clock is a special kind of longcase clock, made in the town Mora in the folklore-stuffed province Dalarna of Sweden.
Production began in the late 18th century and continued through most of the 19th. Many different styles were created, because people often just bought the watch, and had a local carpenter to make the case. By mid 19th century production slowed down and quality deteriorated due to competition from less expensive American and German clocks. Though production continued into the 20th century. Genuine Mora Clocks are today rarities. A narrow definition would say that a true Mora clock is just a Mora clock made in Dalarna in the late 1700s. Also, the pendulum in an original Mora clock is drawn up with a crank or key or via holes in the sleeve side.
