As we are heading toward the holidays, our busy schedules demand that we keep up with the time. Even though we may have a designer watch strapped on our wrists, we still glance at the face of clocks we pass to ensure that we are on schedule and will not be late.
Clocks come in all shapes and sizes - from grand floor clocks to small desk clocks and everything in between. From classic to whimsical, there is a clock for every style and taste to add the perfect touch to home decor. Many have chimes to ring out the quarter hours. Westminster seems to be most common, and when I hear it, I am reminded of the clock my dad faithfully wound every night as I was growing up.
Maitland-Smith's forte is in small desk clocks loaded with detail. Here are a few examples.
Four turtles with penshell inlaid shells hold up the black waxstone base of this unique small desk clock. The clock face and workings are surrounded by Aged Regency finished wood and this provides the perfect resting spot for a handsome antique brass finished lizard.
We will always have appointments to meet, and keeping up with time has never been more fun.
