This tall and slender Mora clock is unusual compared to most other Mora clocks in that it does not have the curved middle belly that are often associated with Mora clocks.
The base itself is fairly square whilst the bottom of the elongated middle there is a curved aspect before ascending into its tall tapered body. There is a carved crown to the top of the rounded hood and this has been painted in gold paint. Gold paint has also been used to paint the scenic patterns on the base of this clock.
The date this clock was made has been painted onto the space below the hood: '1734'. The clock face has only one arm and this is a simple hour hand. There was a convention for some clock in the 17th and 18th century that it was important to know roughly what the hour was and to know the minutes was far too much detail.
