Been shopping for antique clocks lately?
It’s strange that when something is new they are fascinating and cutting edge. Then they become a common place. After a century or so, they become rare, untouchable museum pieces or antiques. An antique clock is not different. It acts as a representation of the time past, a reflection of the culture transformed.
Or it may just look great!
Antique clocks may be bought for several reasons. Perhaps to recreate an era, possibly as an investment or just to enhance the aesthetic value of a wall.
Antique grand father clocks are one of the things that can be bought, provided there is space; lots and lots of space. A good place for an antique clock would be a castle or a mansion of course, but isn’t your home also your castle.
If one has a romantic bent, one could purchase antique French clocks.
Having antique clocks at home is not without it’s share of problems. The fact that they are old and require maintenance and care can be a source of challenges. For instance, they may stop reading accurate time. Either running few minutes (or even a few hours ahead) or simply slowing down to a stop. A good idea would be to have a shop near by that provides maintenance and, of course, this will insure that your antique clocks are well kept and functioning smoothly.
