About

I have this thing about clocks, and making them work, it kills me to see them lying around broken and not running…my hands and eyes just are not as good as they used to be so, I do it more for a pastime now than anything else.  Also to drive my wife crazy..”another CLOCK!” you should her screech it like it was something evil about to come into the house.  No pictures of the “Clock room” are allowed!  She wants it organized, and most of them packed up and gone.  But clocks remain..all over the house..on the walls..tic toking away ..

more clocks the center clock is a French one and the carriage clock is also French..

The Seth Thomas above is one of my person favorites, it works, but as it is set so high on the wall, I tend to forget to wind it..

An American Classic..The Gingerbread with time strike.

While my Wife loves the french clock particularly the small carriage clocks, which used to be used in closed carriages to tell time while traveling, some had alarms and cases so you could take them to hotels to use wake much as we do today.  I love the American classic the Gingerbread Clock with it’s carved,molded, stamped designs and gilded glass of the Victorian Period!  So Many clocks..these are just a few
