‘You will never feel alone with an antique Mora.’ Will you also go cuckoo for these Swedish clocks?

swedish antique mora clock

Akin to the traditional grandfather clock more commonly seen in the UK, the curving Swedish Mora model is a highly unique design with a huge tradition of local craftsmanship behind it. We were intrigued to learn more about this enchanting area of Swedish design history and sat down with Jo Lee who told us just about everything you could wish to know – from the people who first made the Mora to what we should look for when buying one today.

We’d love to see this timeless accessory make a comeback to the 21st century home.

Tick tock, tick tock… In the digital 21st century we so rarely need a clock anymore. Instead, we’ve replaced them with screens! Screens are practical enough when it comes to keeping track of time, but they certainly lack the charm of the traditional clock. It’s easy to forget the fabulous intricacy behind clockwork mechanics, these pieces are a feat of brilliant design and craftsmanship.
