SWEDISH MADE ONE HOUR HAND FOUR WHEEL CLOCK

Clock was hand made by a man who also made and installed the first clock in the capital building in Stockholm, Sweden. It only has for wheels and an hour hand. I read in the letter that came with it that it was over 400 years old. The one weight is an old cannon ball that was suppose to have been in the war called the Swedish Blood Bath. Letter also says that it was brought to the United States in 1884.
