Tick Tock – I love a clock!

I love clocks. I have a dream of filling an entire room with clocks! Unfortunately, the thought of having to change them at daylight savings time definitely stops me from moving forward with that particular dream. There is nothing like a good old fashioned clock face – from traditional to contemporary, whimsical to utilitarian. Clocks are universal.

I saw this Danish Bornholm tall case clock in this months’ New England Home Magazine. Available at Danish Country Antiques in Boston and Wellesley. I love the delicate bonnet and swag painting on the base.

This is a Swedish late 19th century Rococo style wall clock available at one of my favorite antiques stores, Avolli in Maine.

This Keith Betteridge clock can be seen on Fine Woodworking.com.

Phi Kappa Tau Miniature Tall Clock from 1910, available at Ruby Lane

George Nelson 1949 Sunburst clock available at SFMoma

Ghost desk Clock by Yee-Ling Wan available at Moma Store

Ribbon Clock available at PlushPod.

Oops, look at the time! Gotta run, meeting friends for lunch!

What time does your clock say?

  1. I grew up in a house with no traditional clocks in it. We only had digital clocks. My brother could not handle the ticking sound. It would drive him crazy and keep him awake. So my parents got rid of all clocks that weren’t silent, and I got to call my brother “Hook” for many years.

    I guess it stuck because I don’t have any in my house either. I notice the ticking sound more than most people because I lived without it for so long, so I guess in a way you could say that it was contagious.

  2. I’m going to have to snap up that Bornholm clock. My grandmother was born in Bornholm! If I could upload images, I’d send one of my son hanging off the cliffs there with one hand while he was taking a picture of himself with the other hand! But, I digress! 🙂 Beautiful post, just gorgeous.
