I have long been in love with Mora clocks. The curvy shapes, muted colors…I just love them and I hope to one day be able to splurge on a real antique Mora clock. (I even named a color in my milk paint line Mora, in honor of the clocks.)
Until I can have an antique one, this is a pretty sweet substitute…
I’m pretty picky about reproductions and I was honestly a little nervous about this until I pulled it out of the box. It has a beautiful, distressed finish with “chippy” paint, crazing and a pretty patina.
While the body is textured, the face is a flat image with the appearance of texture and age.
It is an operating clock once two AA batteries are inserted.
The glass where the pendulum would be is actually a mirror, which is a pretty clever way to disguise the empty body. It is slightly smoked, again, to lend a sense of age.
I also like the scale of the clock. It measures 20″ wide x 9″ deep x 75.5″ tall. It doesn’t feel dinky at all!
Now, I love the gray and white, but I have a color in my milk paint line called “Mora”, so I just can’t help myself…
