I waited for over a month to receive my shipment, but it was well worth the wait. After Mora clocks took the decorating world by storm, I knew it was a piece I had to own! I started my serious hunt for one and even shopped around while we were in Sweden last year, but shipping was crazy high and seemed impossible to find a shipper who would take it all the way from the Dalarna area in Sweden to Germany!
Now she is here and she is lovely! Almost a year later in my hunt for one, but I am completely satified. I knew when I bought it that I may paint it, and I still might do that, but for now, I am going to leave her stand in all her glory in my corner. Occasionally, actually more than that, I will find myself just staring at her!
I actually have a dealer that won one at auction for me, but I have to come up with the money to buy it before she will ship it!! She is going to hold it for me until then, which I thought was rather sweet! This one that will be coming is white already!!!! My brown one works, but it is quite delicate and touchy and I understand completely why most business put in a quarty movement, rather than the weights!!! I do like to hear her chime though.
