Even the amateur who is Interested only In decorating a house needs a clock somewhere and an antique clock Is often the choice. The simple rule for clocks is "if it Is in working order, attractive or unusual, It is a desirable clock". A true collector's clock should have added features such as age, excellent condition, unusual features, rarity and perhaps a label. There are hundreds of different types of American and English clocks that can still be found and most of them made before World War 1 could be of some value. To decide If your clock Is a collectors gem will require some study. Your best source of information is as close as your public library. If your clock Is an American made clock and the makers name appears on it, it should be listed in "The Book of American Clocks" by Palmer and a complete history of the clock factory can be found. From 1680 to about 1840, the grandfather clock was popular in America. It was originally called a tall case clock and much of the literature written will list it only under that name. The name "grandfather" became popular about 1875 because of the song "My Grandfather's Clock". A Grandmother's clock Is a small grandfather's clock that must be less than six feet six inches In height. They were popular from about 1750 to 1850. There are so many different types of clocks: Wall clocks, mantel clocks, cuckoo clocks, the Wag-on-the-wall, etc. but since "Time" is scarce -and space is limited, we'll write more on clocks and watches in a later column. & Glad to be back after a bout with the flu and an ulcer attack.
