I have big news to share today – something very exciting has arrived here at Maison de Cinq! A dream come true, actually! If you follow me over on Instagram, then you already know what my ‘big news’ is! 😉 But for those of you who don’t, I recently purchased an antique Mora clock! This is something I’ve been dreaming of for years. Something that, although I’ve looked, I didn’t really think I’d ever find.
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 case 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.
