|Arne's Mora Clocks
Get your very own Mora clock! Hand-crafted by Arne Holm, a retired Swedish carpenter in Long Lake, MN.
In 1999, Arne and his wife Virginia went to Sweden hoping to retrieve the family Mora clock that was stored with relatives. That 1783 clock with wooden works was lost amongst the relatives, never to be found again. When they returned from Sweden, Arne decided to make his own Mora clock from memory of the family clock that was in the foyer of his parents home in Sweden.
These curvilinear Scandinavian tall case clocks are hand made today in Arne's work shop with the best wood available and high quality, water-resistant glue. These hard smooth wood surfaces are easily painted by some gold-medal winners in folk art and rosmaling.
The unusual shape makes it a wonderful conversation peice, but the eye-pleasing artwork that can be passed on from one generation to the next may be even more important.
