    What's the likely country of origin on this wall clock case - hand painted, 12 inch tin dial, measures 24 x 26 inches overall. s-l1600 (53).jpg s-l1600 (57).jpg s-l1600 (58).jpg s-l1600 (59).jpg

    It reminds me of Norwegian 'rosemaling', floral painting.
    Beautifully detailed, more so than most rosemaling you see. In that sense it is almost antique Dutch, like antique Hindeloopen or Assendelfts.
    @DragonflyWink will be able to tell us if I am on the right track.;)

    Rosemaling is thought to have been introduced to Norway by migrant workers who returned from Dutch employment in the 17th century, hence the similarities.
