This page features wonderful authentic American antique clocks - grandfather clocks, mantle clocks and even cuckoo clocks.
The fascination that people have with old clocks somewhat stymied us until we saw some of the exquisite timepieces manufactured hundreds of years ago that our visitors have brought to our attention. There is a significant difference between antique furniture and antique clocks - a clock is a mechanical device - it is an intricate and precision made instrument. It embodies an engineering element not required by furniture.
Unlike the Pentium III an antique clock was manufactured by a craftsman by hand. The "works" of the clock were in many cases hand stamped. The weights and timing mechanisms were sheer genius and a labor of love. Furthermore the finish of many of these precision instruments, whether the wooden casements or the mechanical insides, is an extraordinary example of dedication and artistry.
