|Danish term or phrase: stueuhr i foteral|
|English translation:(grandfather) clock in case / longcase clock|
uhr is an old spelling (correct in its day) similar to e.g. 'the olde shoppe'. Foteral must mean foderal, that appears to be an irregular spelling. I guess the words stem from an old text from before spellings were standardised. If recent the spelling uhr is a deliberate archaicism; foteral could then be an error, or copied from some ancient text.
