Our brains are seventy-year clocks. The Angel of Life winds them up once for all, then closes the case, and gives the key into the hand of the Angel of the Resurrection. -Oliver Wendell Holmes

Swedish tall case clock, circa 1810, from Gryt in Östergötland on the east coast. The movement is of very high quality, solid brass, with a calendar and alarm, and a spiral gong as well as a bell. The clock strikes the hour on the gong and the half-hour on the bell, also using the bell for the alarm. The case has the typical rococo curves with a scrolled crown and charming heart-shaped pendulum window. The brass hands repeat the heart motif. H:91", W:21½", D:10". Ref. #12-30
