The Swedish Mora Clock has been a very popular ‘go to’ piece for interior designers for many years now. This is often accredited to the Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson movie Something’s Gotta Give from 2003. The Mora long-case clock has been around for the last 300 hundred years. Originating in central Sweden in the town of Mora. The clock cases were often made by farmers and other agricultural workers to sustain their income through the long winter months in Sweden. The clock movements were then supplied separately by local watch and clock makers.
