News-Antique.com - Nov 30,-0001 - Every family seems to have something important to them that belonged to a parent, grandparent or even great grandparent. These heirlooms seem to be passed down through the generations, usually with a story behind them.
Clocks seem to be one of the items that top this list. One reason being is because clocks serve a practical purpose in the home, and were referred to constantly on a daily basis. (What time is it?). The sounds or chimes that they create become part of the house, and part of the family. As a young child, you may remember that TV clock sitting on Grandpa’s RCA Black-and-White Television. Or the Westminster chimes of the wall clock in Grandma’s dining room. The soothing ticking of a Big Ben Alarm Clock in the bedroom may have helped ease you through many scary thunderstorms. Regardless of the reason, clocks make an impression on young memories that seem to stay throughout life. When passed down, it seems that part of the owner gets passed down with it. (“My mother just loved this clock”). And we take great care in preserving these cherished memories.
The problem is the glorious era of American Made clocks is long over Even one of our most Famous Clock Makers, Seth Thomas, is now owned by Hermle, Germany, and uses German-Made Movements. Everything else all seems to come from China, and you're going to need batteries to make it work!
