News-Antique.com - Apr 12,2010 - Dublin, New Hampshire (April 5, 2010) -- Yankee Magazine’s “Antiques & Collectibles” columnist, Catherine Riedel, discusses the Chelsea clock, known for their precision, accuracy and quality, in the March/April issue. The Chelsea Clock Company started in Chelsea, Massachusetts in 1897. The clocks are still made today in the original factory; however, the antique versions are the most desirable. Prices range from $300 to $500 for small case clocks to more than $20,000 for the finest examples.

“Made of solid brass, with exquisite dial work and handcrafted cases, they make a strong statement about quality,” says Skinner’s clock expert, Robert C. Cheney, “With proper cleaning every five years, a Chelsea clock made 100 years ago will keep accurate time for many generations.”
