Have you heard of Mora clocks? I’m going to guess that if you like French and Swedish style as much as I do, you’ve probably seen one. I know when I first saw them, I had no idea what they were called, but I knew I was smitten!
Gustavian Mora clocks are long face clocks that originated in the town of Mora, Sweden. I first started seeing them a few years ago, and as I became more enamored with French and Swedish styles, I became more and more obsessed.
They are tall, and graceful; usually painted in soft shades of creams, greys, greyish-whites, or pale, pale blues. They are so gorgeous! I have been wanting one for awhile now, but they are prohibitively expensive. However, there are reproductions. If I can’t find an antique one for a sane price, I might have to break down and buy a copy.
They are so charming! And, I have the perfect spot for it. Now I just need to find an antique that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg! 😉

|Here Miss Mustard Seed uses a reproduction – but look how good it looks! If I could get a reproduction this good, I would definitely consider it!|

This replica is actually quite pretty! I saw it in person in the Restoration Hardware outlet recently, but I ended up not getting it. I decided I really want a painted one. But it was a great deal!

I have the absolute perfect place in my living room – crossing my fingers that I can find one!
