CHOOSING YOUR MORA CLOCK

To help you decide which is the right Mora Clock for you, heres a short checklist of things for you to think about.

  • Do you have a colour preference?

  • Roman or standard numerals?

  •  

  • Clean or distressed clockface?

  •  

  • Simple or extravagant decoration?

  •  

  • Natural wood or painted finish?

  •  

  • Standard size or larger clockface?

  •  

  • Standard size or larger hood?

  •  

  • Fairly pristine paint finish or more distressed?

  •  

  • Electric mechanism or Electric Chiming Mechanism?

  •  

  • What is your maximum available height and width?

  •  

  • Where will it go in your home?

  •  

  • Do you want a pendulum window in the belly?

  •  

  • Do you want a narrow belly or wide belly?

  •  

  • Do you want a narrow or wide waist?

  •  

  • Do you want to have a crown on the hood?

  •  

  • Do you want a hinged face glass?

  •  

  • Are your floors level? (if not the clock may need bolting to the wall)

  •  

  • Do you want it to tick or chime?

  •  

  • Do you want it to stop chiming at night?

  •  

  • Do you want to repaint it to match your decor? We specialise Mora clock repaints

  •  

  • Do you want any restoration work done to the wood or paint? We are specialists in Mora clock restoration

  •  

  • What will you call her? ( all Mora Clocks need to be given a name)

Do remember though, that your Mora Clock will be your friend for life: at the end of the day, it's an emotional choice.

 

They come in sizes from 180-250cm & are generally 50-60cm wide and approx 25cm deep

There are various subsets of clocks - bridal clocks, country clocks, fryksdall clocks, jamtland clocks and so on

 

Our advice is always this - forget the science and the 'collector' stuff. A mora clock is for life and there will be one clock that just calls to your heart. That is the one for you - it might be the most simple or the most ornate, but it is the emotional connection you make that is the important thing

 

We have 5 at home and get a thrill every time we walk past them - they are like guardian angels watching over us and each has a name!

 

Don't drive yourself mad with a list of features your perfect clock must have...... this face , that hood ornament, this waist shape, that belly, this pedestal, that handpainted motif etc - only to find that a clock that perhaps doesn't tick any of your carefully crafted logical search criteria is the right one for you.

We love helping our clients find the right clock for them so let's decide together - it's fun!
