Fine and rare Empire Swedish cartel clock. Very elaborately carved wooden case in the form of a trophy with a shield, plumed helmet, sword and branches of laurel leaves, typical of the Empire taste for military themes derived from classical art. The dial signed J.F. Cedergren Stockholm (Johan Fredrik Cedergren, 1774-1839). Very good, original condition. There is a comparable clock by Cedergren in the collection of the Nordiska Museet (see photograph).
